Run the London Marathon in 2021 for The Salvation Army!

Starting in Blackheath, winding around the River Thames to finish at The Mall, this world renowned marathon event is fast, flat and not to be missed! 

Find out how you can run for Team Sally Army in one of our charity places by completing the form below! 

Funds raised through your incredible efforts will go towards supporting adult victims of modern slavery OR any Salvation Army project OR Salvation Army Corps close to your heart.

Centuries after slavery was officially abolished, thousands of people are still being exploited and sold as slaves across the UK. Everyone supported by The Salvation Army receives access to a wide range of specialist services to meet their individual needs, whether that is within a safehouse or through outreach support. With your help in fundraising, you can make a massive difference to the level of support we provide for these vulnerable people in our communities.
