The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the world's best sporting events, as well as one of life's great challenges, and we want to help you to be a part of it.

London is one of the five marathons that make up the World Marathon Majors, and one of the best things about it is it's open to everyone - so  first time runners can line up alongside the world’s elite.

So, if you want to take part we will provide you with training, and nutrition and fundraising advice to help get you to the start, through the wall and over the line.

With over 35,000 people taking part and raising more than £50 million for charities, why not make 2017 your year and support Home-Start UK?

Fundraise for us:

We have charity places.  At the moment they are all filled for 2017.  BUT ....  sometimes our runners get injured or have to pull out for other reasons and we can reallocate these places up until February 2017.  We would love to hear from you if you want  to be put on a waiting list for them

If you you win a place in the marathon ballot and wish to run for Home-Start, then please also get in touch.

You can reach our fundraising team on 0116 258 7900 or email us.  We'd love to have you running as part of our team.

Run in support of Home-Start and you will receive free Home-Start running vest or t-shirt, welcome pack, weekly e-newsletter and ongoing fundraising and training support and advice. 

As an ballot place runner, there are no sponsorship targets to meet.  We are always grateful for your support and for any funds you can raise to help fund our vital work with vulnerable families across the UK.

The London Marathon is one of the most recognizable fundraising events of the year. By running for Home-Start we can help you achieve your goal, while you help us change the lives of thousands of families across the UK.
