London Marathon


Share this:

Run the world’s greatest fundraising marathon.

Since the very first race back in 1981, the London Marathon has become the world’s most famous fundraising race. 40,000 runners take part on the day, many competing in fancy dress costumes for good causes, and places are highly sought after in this top event.

Places are obtained via the London Marathon ballot, which is now closed for 2021 entry. Successful ballot places are being announced on Monday 8 February.

Well done! We wish you the best of luck in securing a place in the 2021 London Marathon.

If you are successful, please get in touch. We’d love for you to run for The Grand Appeal or Cots for Tots and help raise money for sick children and babies at Bristol Children’s Hospital and St Michael’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. You can register as a fundraiser here.

There is no minimum sponsorship if you have secured your own place, just raise as much as you can so we can continue our mission to help every brave young patient at the hospital and the unit.
