London Marathon 2024

First held on 29 March 1981, London is widely regarded as the world’s most prestigious marathon due to the large number of world class athletes who take part every year. It was once described as “the major race of the world’s major marathons.”

Now sponsored by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), the course has remained largely unchanged since 2981. Roughly 45,000 people enter the London Marathon every year. Spaces are incredibly difficult to come by due to its status on the world Marathon calendar.

The London Marathon is famous for its fast course and for it’s focus on fundraising for good causes. More money is raised for charity at the London Marathon than at any other running event across the world.

The Route

The world-famous London Marathon route has remained largely unchanged since the inaugural event in 1981. The course takes runners past many of London’s finest landmarks including the Curry Sark, Canary Wharf, the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. The race starts in Blackheath in Eouth-East London.

London Marathon places are incredibly hard to find. We do not have any allocated places for 2024 but we will for 2025. All we ask is that you try to raise sponsorship funds in support of Run 4 Cancer.  We set very low minimum sponsorship funds and fully understand that the cost of living crisis is impacting people’s ability to sponsor people.  To reserve your Run 4 Cancer place, get in touch with us using the form below.
