London Marathon

I said I wanted to run London, just the once! The friends I met along the way and the pride I felt representing LCF continued far beyond the day itself. It’s why I’m coming back again this year!

Run for London

Registrations for the TCS London Marathon 2024 are now closed.

The London Marathon is the world’s largest annual fundraising event. With professional athletes to fancy dress fundraisers running the famous 26 miles from Blackheath, through the City of London to the historic finish line in the Mall.

We ask each of our runners to raise £1,000 to support our work helping London’s community groups and charities and we’ll support you every step of the way. You will receive full fundraising support, alongside a runner’s pack full of tips and advice, a running vest and meet up opportunities (in line with government guidelines) with other London Community Foundation runners.

The money you raise will help us carry out vital work transforming local communities across London.

If you are already signed up for 2024 and have any questions, please email Chris on

London Marathon 2023

The London Marathon is the world’s largest annual fundraising event. The 2023 TCS London Marathon took place on 23 April 2023 and saw an estimated 49,000 runners take part, more than any previous London Marathon.

Since the first London Marathon in 1981, the event has raised more than £1 billion for charity, including our team of incredible runners, who ran to raise funds for The London Community Foundation. In 2023, they collectively raised an incredible £37,097.00, which will help us to continue to raise and grant funds to support London’s grassroots organisations. We are extremely grateful for their support and hard work.

Got another fundraising idea?

If you have an idea to raise funds for community projects in London, you can set up your own fundraising page here. It might be a park run, a bake sale, a pub quiz or a sponsored sing-a-thon, every little helps!

A marathon runner, wearing a red The London Community Foundation running vest, raises their arms as they run towards the camera. The name on their vest is 'Jenny'. Behind them and to the right of the runner are many more marathon runners taking part, wearing a range of different coloured vests and shirts.
