On the day

The London Marathon has one of the most spectacular race routes in the world. Passing some of London's most iconic landmarks, runners will cover over 26 miles before finishing on the Mall alongside St James's Park. You'll have the whole fundraising team cheering you on from the sideline at Mile 17 to help you get through those last few miles.

Your impact

We ask our marathon runners to raise a minimum of £2,000 to secure a charity place. This means that on average each of our marathon runners help two people move on from injury to independence.

Last year our Aspire London Marathon runners raised over £45,000 for people with spinal cord injury. This incredible amount helped over 40 people move on with their lives from injury to independence. Rowena was able to purchase a hand bike with the help of Aspire runners that has allowed her to get out and about enjoying the countryside again. She said: "I try to get across to people that it’s not just about access, it means that I can have fun again. My hand bike has given me back some fun and the capacity to get out into the fresh air again. I’ve got Aspire to thank for that.”
