Age UK runner at London Marathon

We're looking for runners to join Team Age UK in the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon!

Take on the world famous 26.2 mile challenge and raise vital funds to help Age UK be there for older people across the UK who feel they have no one to turn to.

As part of Team Age UK, we'll provide support and advice throughout your training. Our runners benefit from:

  • training support from our Age UK running coach
  • personal fundraising support and advice
  • Team Age UK training day
  • Age UK running vest and fundraising pack
  • Age UK pasta party the day before the race day
  • energetic cheer points along the route to cheer you on and keep you going
  • exclusive access to the Age UK post-race reception.

We ask our Age UK runners to pledge to raise £2,000 (excluding Gift Aid). If you are successful, you will be required to pay a £100 registration fee to secure the place.

Fill out the application form below and we'll be in touch soon.
