Join over 40,000 participants and run the world’s most iconic marathon through the streets of this amazing capital city.
The Virgin Money London Marathon ballot results will be announced in mid-October. If you’re one of the lucky ones who was successful in gaining a place, or you got your place through a running club, good for age or have a deferred entry we would love to have you join the team by clicking ‘I already have my own place’. As an own place runner, you receive all the same support from our dedicated Events Team as those with the charity place but with no sponsorship target to meet.
Run for us and help provide dementia care until a cure can be found.
By running for Dementia UK, you will receive the following support and race day perks:
A dedicated member of staff to help you reach your fundraising and training goals
Your very own Dementia UK running vest
Professional advice from our running coach partners to help you prepare for your challenge, from a training day in January to bespoke training plans
An amazing experience at race weekend – with a lively cheer point and a post-race reception where we can celebrate your achievement with you!
Volunteer with us on the day!
Roles vary from making as much noise as possible at a cheer point to making hard-earned cups of tea for runners post event. We’ll provide you with a Dementia UK t-shirt and all you need to bring on the day is your enthusiasm! Please fill in our short volunteer form and we will be in touch with more details.
To anyone thinking of running for Dementia UK next year, I say do it. If you haven’t been affected by dementia, there’s a good chance that at some point in your life you will be, so whatever amount we can raise will help now and in in the future
