Supporting you all the way

If you've got your own place, we'd love you to join the team. Here's what you'll get:

  • A post-race party for you and your supporters, where you’ll have a hot shower, a professional massage, and a hot meal.
  • A venue your supporters can visit throughout the day for toilet breaks and food.
  • An Action for Children running vest, with iron-on letters.
  • Cheering points for your supporters within easy reach of our post-race reception and the finish-line.
  • Advice and support from a dedicated local fundraiser, with a fundraising pack to get you started.
  • Regular e-newsletters, with important information and training tips from the experts

I already have a place but would like to run for Action for Children 

All of our charity places have now been filled for 2020's London Marathon and so applications are now closed.

Why run with Action for Children?

“I get to see first-hand how we improve and change children’s, young people’s and all of their families’ lives. I feel very blessed to be a part of such a fantastic charity. Now to be able to fundraise as well is a real bonus on top”
