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.
- 21 April 2024
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.

Run 4 Cancer - About Us
Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery.

“With a sick child, everything is governed by their health; it's a cloud that's permanently hanging over us. We couldn't do this sort of thing normally. Thank you!”
“Two weeks before the trip my PSA reading had reached 28. After our holiday my reading is now 10.8!”
“Being diagnosed with cancer was an extremely stressful time. After the chemo and radiotherapy it was a pleasure to have something to look forward to.”
“These days out for all the family to enjoy mean so much to us as we have to spend so much time apart. Thank you again for all you do in support of families like ours.”
“Thank you for making the difference to the lives of children that have had to cope with things that no one should have to go through, let alone young kids.”
“It is impossible for people not in our situation to understand just how precious the memories of such a great day can be.”
“For a week I swam and did things I never ever thought I would do again. I did not think about cancer for more than a fleeting moment the whole week.”
