Where: London

The London Marathon is a truly spectacular event and the biggest annual fundraiser in the world, raising more than £1 billion for good causes since it began in 1981. Running a marathon is an incredible challenge, but there is nothing quite like the thrill of running the closed streets of London, lined with thousands of spectators screaming your name.

I have my own place


Congratulations! Will you use your place to help us push back against arthritis? You’ll get the same support as our charity place runners, but you won’t need to commit to a sponsorship target.

Run with your own place
