Put a spring in your step by taking on the TCS London Marathon with Team Leonard Cheshire.
Join Team Leonard Cheshire
We're thrilled to be donning our running shoes and taking on the iconic London Marathon!
The world-famous London Marathon route has remained largely unchanged since the inaugural race in 1981 and encompasses many of the capital's most mesmerising landmarks, old and new. After 3 long years, the iconic race is returning to its usual Spring date in the calendar.
We ask all our runners to fundraise at least £1,000 (with a registration fee of £100) to support disabled people to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability.
What you'll receive
As part of the Leonard Cheshire team you’ll receive
- Tips and tricks to boost your fundraising in the run up to the big day.
- Free running vest with iron on letters to make your vest your own.
The London Marathon truly is a special day but don’t take our word for it. Check out what our previous marathon runners thought:
'‘My favourite bit about running the marathon was having Leonard Cheshire cheer us on. It is a cause that it close to my heart and it means a lot to me to raise awareness of the work they do and for us runners to be raising thousands of pounds for them.’ — Debbie, runner
‘Seeing my family and people from Leonard Cheshire out there cheering me on made all of the difference. It really helped get me through.’ — Deborah, runner
‘It was a challenge of course but it is a great charity and a great cause.’ — Kenneth, runner
'Just want to say a huge thank you for the opportunity to run London for Leonard Cheshire this year. It was an amazing experience, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and to know it’s helped such a fantastic charity is absolutely amazing!’ — Christie, runner

Were you lucky enough to get a ballot place? We would still love you to run for us. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
By running for us, you are supporting everyone to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability.
One in five of us will become disabled at some point in our lives, so here's why our fundraising target is £1,000. Many will become disabled after an accident, or from a stroke, cancer or developing conditions like multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease. These life-changing circumstances can stop people in their tracks. Your marathon fundraising will make sure they can live a full life again, and achieve their dreams.
