Run the London Marathon 2020 for your hospital!

The Virgin Money London Marathon returns for its 40th year in 2020 and Barts Charity has five places available for this iconic race.

On Sunday 26th April, you could be taking on the 26.2 miles of one of the most popular marathons in the world.  But you don’t need to be super-fit, the London Marathon welcomes all abilities.

Being part of our team means you can choose to raise money for a hospital close to your heart, research that improves lives, or donate to our general fund for your donation to be spent where it is most needed.

Our amazing 2018 runners!
