London Marathon


Run London for London

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the world’s largest annual fundraising event and you could be part of it by running with us. Whether you want a new challenge or you are a seasoned marathon runner looking to do more for your community this is your chance to show London what you’re made of!

We ask each of our runners to raise £2,000 to support our work helping London’s community groups and charities. We will support you from the moment you sign up to help you achieve this, giving you a fundraising pack, keeping in touch with you in the coming months and introducing you to our other runners.

The money you raise will help us carry out vital work transforming local communities across the capital. Child poverty, unemployment, isolation, homelessness, domestic violence and gang crime are just some of the issues we are tackling through our grant-making. So far we have awarded over £55 million into more than 11,500 charitable projects across the capital since we started in 1995.

So why not be a part of this and support the communities you will be running the streets of in April 2017!

All of our 2017 marathon places are full. If you'd like to express interest in running the London Marathon for The London Community Foundation in 2018, please express interest to Lana at or phone 0207 582 5117.

Here's what some of our runners said about running for us...

“It’s been a real pleasure to have raised funds for the LCF. You clearly run a very deserving cause in a compassionate, cheerful and highly thoughtful way – even though it is not why any of us raise money for charity, it has been really refreshing to have had your ongoing support and enthusiasm for our efforts.”

Sam Barnett

 “It was an absolute pleasure running for such a great cause, I'd be more than happy to do it again next year!”
