After the 2020 race was postponed due to Covid-19, the world famous London Marathon is set to return in October 2021!
Make this year one to remember and take on the 26-mile route for ActionAid. Feel the buzz as you run through the crowd-lined streets of London, past some of the capital's most iconic landmarks, before heading towards Pall Mall for a triumphant finish outside Buckingham Palace. It will be a day you'll never forget.
We'll be here to support you along your marathon journey, and by running for ActionAid you will help change the lives of women and girls living in poverty.

How your sponsorship helps
Mary is a nurse from northern Ghana where she helps deliver babies. Growing up, Mary's family could not afford to pay for her to take her school exams. Thankfully, Mary's father managed to secure a small loan through an ActionAid funded women's group, giving Mary the opportunity to undertake her exams and pursue her dream of becoming a nurse.
Mary's skills in her local community are essential, where health care facilities are basic. She now attends talks in her village, arranged by ActionAid, and inspires local girls telling them "If I was able to make it, you can also make it."
