Virgin London Marathon 2020

The London Marathon has now been moved to October 2020, and CARE still has spaces left!

We have one of the lowest fundraising targets around and you'll receive support by the bucket load if you do run for CARE.

Equally, if you were lucky enough to get a ballot place then we'd love for you to fundraise for CARE all the same.

In the world of running, it doesn’t get any more spectacular than the Virgin Money London Marathon.

The atmosphere is electric, the crowd support is like no other and the route is stunning taking you around London’s iconic landmarks. 

Not only will you have one of the most amazing days of your life, but your support can help to change the lives of some of the poorest people around the world. From developing long term solutions to hunger and poverty, to delivering emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, your support will help those who need it most. 

What we offer 

Once you've signed up you'll receive:

  • A CARE technical t-shirt, perfect for running as it wicks away sweat to keep you cool
  • A fundraising and training guide
  • Full support from our team from start to finish
  • Huge cheers on race day

By joining CARE's Virgin London Marathon 2020 team, you will support CARE International, to help women and girls to break the cycle of poverty – because when one woman works her way out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Please note, if you do register to run for CARE, Gift Aid cannot be included in your fundraising total. Gift Aid is a scheme designed by the government as a great bonus for charities where it can be claimed, but it also not guaranteed, therefore Gift Aid is not included in the minimum sponsorship for any CARE fundraising event.


*New* Virtual London Marathon

We have teamed up with RunForCharity to offer you the opportunity to run the London Marathon virtually! The Run London Virtual Challenge allows you to run individually or as part of a team to complete 26.2 miles. 

Check out the RunForCharity website for more information, to sign up, and take on the marathon.
