Sadly, we have not been allocated any charity places from the London Marathon organisers, so we are unable to have an official Walk the Walk team.

However, if you are one of the lucky ones to have been offered a Ballot place we would love for you to still choose Walk the Walk to fundraise for... after all, The Virgin Money London Marathon is the biggest fundraising challenge in the world! 

This is one of the 5 Marathon Majors, held in our Capital, this challenge takes you from Greenwich Park, through Tower Bridge, alongside the River Thames and finishing in the stunning Mall! The crowds and bands will keep you going and smiling through the 26.2 miles of this iconic Marathon.

The support that I received was no longer solely coming from the crowd; runners cheering my name & taking photos of me!- Joey


For Ballot places there is no minimum fundraising amount, just unite with us against breast cancer, be loud and proud, get fit and have fun.


Is this challenge for me?

This marathon has to be completed within a maximum finish time is 7 hours, with training and commitment this is certainly achievable and a largely flat course too. You should be aiming for 14-16 minute miles during your training to conquer the famous London Marathon.



To be part of the Walk the Walk team was an Honour.- Gill & Jim
