The London Marathon is the biggest marathon in the UK and largest fundraising event in the world. It's an unforgettable experience with 40,000 people taking part in the 26.2 mile race and a great way to support Action Duchenne.

Are you interested in taking part in the London Marathon 2019 for us?

There are three options to take part for us:

  1. Charity Places - We ask those interested in running for us to fill in an application form and send it back to [email protected] The registration fee is £40 (non refundable)+ £2,500 minimum sponsorship target.

  2. Ballot Places  - The general ballot is open from Monday 30 April to 17:00 on Friday 4 May. Enter here and run for us!

  3. Good For Age - If you have run a qualification time since January 2017 you can enter using the Good For Age registration time in August and run for us!

In April 2018 our seven runners raised over £22,000. This figure is life-changing and is helping to fund the ground-breaking research and our work to give people with Duchenne longer & better lives.

We've already had a lot of interest in our charity places so if you're up for the challenge please contact us right away. Registration Fee is £40 and we require you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £2,500 (excluding Gift Aid).
