Virgin Money London Marathon

The Virgin Money London Marathon is a world-class event taking in the best our capital city has to offer. 43,000 people take to the streets of London and run the 26.2 mile course. 

There aren’t many events as iconic as this one! So whether this is your first marathon, or you’re aiming for a PB, we’d love you to join our team. If you have a place in the London Marathon through the ballot, you can use it to make a real difference.

Why choose to run for Barts Charity?
