About the Virgin Money London Marathon

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the biggest fundraising event on the planet and quite simply, the world’s greatest marathon!

Lined with hundreds of thousands of supporters, this famous route takes in many of London’s top sights, starting off in historical Greenwich and finishing in The Mall.

It's an event for novices and experienced runners to enjoy, and you can be a part of it by joining Team Now. 

Team Now benefits

The Team Now experience

You won’t be on your own on the day either as we’ll be there to scream, shout and cheer you on during the run with one of the loudest cheering teams on the route, plus we'll provide cheer sticks for your supporters so they can join us and do the same.

We’ll also be putting on a fantastic after-party where there will be a free massage to help ease your tired muscles and plenty of refreshments for you, your friends and family so you can all celebrate your amazing achievement.

Volunteer on the day

If you're not running the marathon this year, you can still get involved on the day. Join in with the hundreds of thousands of supporters in creating one of the best running atmospheres in the world along this spectacular marathon route - apply to be a volunteer today!

What do our Team Now members say

My brother Tom and I are 100% committed to finding ways to stop breast cancer. The strength and bravery that our mum showed was so inspirational to us through our childhood and these traits still live on in us today. We take on these running challenges to try and do what we believe our mum would have wanted us to do, and that would not have been to take a backward step and be beaten by the sad time. She would have wanted us to get back up, brush ourselves down and realise that there are people who are still suffering from the impact of this disease that we can help.

So far we’ve raised nearly £10,000 to fund breast cancer research and the charity has always been extremely supportive and encouraging. Tom and I have the cause and memories we are running for that will mean that we never stop running!

Breast Cancer Now is a fantastic charity helping to beat a disease that affects us all. Running the London Marathon for them was a pleasure and raising money for such a worthy charity is a great feeling.

Warwick, Virgin Money London Marathon Team Now member 2015

The support from Breast Cancer Now was fantastic. Everything from registering for the place to the Marathon training day event through to the great support on the day was superb.
