Notice: In light of the increasing risks surrounding mass participation events during the COVID-19 outbreak, the organisers of the Virgin London Marathon 2020 have decided to postpone the event, scheduled to take place on 26th April, until Sunday 4th October 2020.

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

This is a fantastic event for all types of runners and a great day out for supporters. Please note that at this time all of our charity places in the 2020 event have now been filled. However, we do operate a waiting list so if you would like to apply to be added to this, please complete the form below.

If you have received your own place through the public ballot or good-for-age, we would love to welcome you to the team! Just get in touch by emailing or calling 0207 616 7916.


Whether you will be running with a charity place or your own place we would love to have you on our team. By raising sponsorship you will be helping vision-impaired veterans regain their independence.

As part of our fundraising support, you will receive the following:

• A Blind Veterans UK running vest
• A fundraising guide
• Team communication and ongoing help with fundraising
• Flags and clappers for your friends and family cheering you on the day
• A bright and noisy Blind Veterans UK cheer point on race day


Would you like to be part of this great event? If so, you can join our cheer squad on the day to cheer on our runners as they make it round the course and to bring a smile to their face.

You will receive for the day a Blind Veterans UK T-shirt, cheersticks and clappers.

Interested? Please email with your details.
