Virgin Money London Marathon 2015


Join Team Sally Army in our 150th Anniversary year!

Sunday 26 April 2015

The London Marathon is the UK’s landmark race, and the world’s most famous marathon. Each year 35,000 runners take part and thousands of cheering spectators line the iconic course through central London from Blackheath to The Mall: the atmosphere is, quite simply, incredible.

2015 will be our 150th Anniversary, and we’re hoping that as many people as possible will join our ‘Team Sally’ runners to help us raise much needed funds for our work with homeless people.

Please join us – we’d love to have you on board!

"Running a marathon isn't just the 26.2 miles on race day, it's the training, the blood, sweat and tears, it's the fundraising, the people you meet, the stories you hear and it's the great feeling of achievement when you cross that finish line! I felt very proud wearing my Salvation Army race vest"

- Ashleigh, 2014 Marathon Runner
