We'll even make sure you're kitted out with an Aspire running top for you to wear proudly on the big day! 

Unsuccessful? Secure your place with us now. We have a limited number of charity places available for the London Marathon 2020 - get in touch now to guarantee your place at the starting line in April.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for giving me the opportunity to run the London Marathon for Aspire. It was a brilliant experience that I will remember for a very long time, and made even better knowing I was raising money for such a worthwhile charity.  Thank you also for your weekly emails and for all of your encouragement in the cold winter months when the last thing I often wanted to do was put my trainers on and hit the pavements! It really did make a difference.

- Roger, 2019 

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.

Rowena was able to purchase a hand bike that has allowed her to get out and about enjoying the countryside again with the help of Aspire runners from a previous year. 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.”
