Virgin Money London Marathon

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.


The ballot results are in!

Have you received the fantastic news that you’ve secured your own place in the London Marathon? Do something amazing with your ballot place; run for #TeamSallyArmy and transform the lives of victims of human trafficking or alternatively support a local Salvation Army project of your choice.

Why we need your support

A different Salvation Army project is chosen every year to receive funds raised by our marathon runners and our 2019 beneficiary project will be our anti-human trafficking service.

Modern Slavery is not just a problem in other countries. It exists in our own, local communities here in the UK. It is inconceivable to think that today, woman, men and children are treated as commodities – bought and sold to satisfy the greed and desires of others.

By running for The Salvation Army you will be joining our mission to support individuals to build a new life. Do something amazing, run the greatest marathon in the world and help us to protect and care for vulnerable victims of modern slavery.
