If you ever wanted to run the London Marathon then you have come to the right place!
About the Race
The London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet; over 1 million competitors have taken part raising millions of pounds for good causes since the race began in 1981. It’s also one of the most iconic 26.2 mile runs in the world!
When is it happening?
The Virgin Money London Marathon has been moved from it’s usual month of April to October 3rd 2021 to make it as Covid secure as possible.
What is the criteria?
Charity places cost us over £400 each so we ask that each of our runners pay a registration fee of £100 and raise a minimum of £2,500. Due to the 2020 race being cancelled and our runners moving to next year we only have two places available so we’re looking for runners who are passionate about vital cancer care and really want to run for Penny Brohn.
How do I get a place?

Got your own place?
If you were successful in the public ballot (to be announced in January 2021) we’d love to have your support! Just email us to join the team. Our own place runners have no fundraising target – just raise as much as you can!

“Penny Brohn UK helped my Dad and our family at his darkest time. Running for Penny Brohn was my way of giving back to this amazing charity. The level of support and encouragement I received from them was incredible; I’d urge anyone to join their team and know that you are making a real difference. You won’t regret it!”
