Have your own place in the event?

If you have secured your own place in the event through the official London Marathon ballot, then we would love to have you as part of the team. There is no minimum fundraising target, however anything you raise will go a long way in helping us to support vulnerable children.

From start to finish Barnardo's made running the London Marathon a really memorable and rewarding experience. I felt part of a family with the charity and other runners. The support leading up to the event, on race day then at the reception afterwards really showed how much the Barnardo’s team care for their runners. I was proud to wear that Barnardo's vest.
