Each year, a group of dedicated runners raise funds in the London Marathon to help us improve the lives of our more vulnerable residents across the city.

The next London Marathon will take place on Sunday 22 April 2018. Reserve your place here.

The London Marathon

Our organisation is woven into 50 years of rich London history and community, and we are proud to participate in one of the largest events of our city. Dedicated runners have represented us in the Virgin London Marathon for two decades, helping raise funds to invest in some of London’s most vulnerable people.

About the race

The London Marathon is widely regarded as one of the biggest marathons in the world. Tens of thousands of people take part each year from every corner of the world, and millions of others watch. The annual race starts in Greenwich and, after 26.2 gruelling miles, the brave runners cross the finish line in front of Buckingham Palace.

About our runners

Anyone 18+ who pledges to raise at least £1,450 (includes a £50 entry fee) can run the race for our charity. Runners choose to participate as an individual or as a team. We’ll help out where we can and promote our runners on social media with photos and stories.

Where do the funds our runners raise go?

Every penny of sponsorship money raised by our runners is used to provide a lifeline to the most vulnerable individuals and families living in our housing.

In 2016, we raised over £55,000, and we hope to raise even more next year!
