Run the world famous Virgin Money London Marathon in support of Francis House Children’s Hospice.

Attracting more than 40,000 runners year-on-year, the London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event worldwide. Runners have raised more than £1 billion for good causes since the race began in 1981.

By running for Francis House, you can be a part of this incredible event and experience first-hand just why the London Marathon is the most popular marathon on the planet.

Francis House does wonderful work for local families and I'm proud to have raised money for them.”

Stephen Bradley, ran the virtual London Marathon in 2020

Charity Running Place

For 2021, we want you to be a part of the Virgin London Marathon with a Francis House running place!

Places will be offered to dedicated supporters who feel they can commit to raising a target of £2,500. We also ask successful applicants to pay a registration fee of £100.

"It was a pleasure to represent Francis House and although it was tough it was one of the best things I’ve ever done."

Ben Hunt ran for Francis House in 2019

Do you have your own place?

If you are one of the lucky few to secure your own race place, we’d love you to run for Francis House. There is no minimum sponsorship – we are truly grateful of any donations.

Francis House marathon runners will receive ongoing support from the Fundraising Team including fundraising materials, a running vest, plus training and fundraising guidance.
