About London marathon

Run for Mind in the Virgin London Marathon!

This is one of life's great challenges; the atmosphere is second to none and the sense of achievement is wonderful.

As a fundraising event nothing can compete with the marathon, with thousands of people taking to the streets each year, many in fancy dress, raising money for causes close to their hearts.

We'd love to have you running as part of our team.

Mind are the best charity I have ever run for ! Fab cheering stations! A good luck card and a friendly hug outside the meet and greet.

What's it like?

Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales and by joining our team you will enable us to continue to provide support to the 1 in 4 people who experience mental distress in their life times.
