Run with ActionAid UK in the world-famous London Marathon, and help to raise funds for some of the world’s poorest women and girls. 

With an incredible atmosphere, and supporters cheering you all the way along the spectacular 26-mile route from Greenwich to Buckingham Palace, it’s an unforgettable experience. If you only ever run one marathon, make it this one.

We’ll support you with top training advice and fundraising tips to help you run the biggest race of your life. You’ll get the loudest cheers on race day and a big celebration at our post-race reception at the prestigious Institute of Directors, a stone’s throw from the finish line by Pall Mall!
