Why you should run virtually with us
The past few years have shown just how vital our services are, but also how much we can do for children when we join together. The pandemic led to children spending more time online, leading to an increase in online abuse. We’re fighting to make the internet safer for children, but we can only do that with the help of incredible people like you. By taking part in the Virtual London Marathon, every step you take and every pound you raise will help us keep children safe, online and offline.
We’ll help you get race-ready by giving you:
- essential training tips and tailored support from our training partners
- your own London Marathon finishing medal and t-shirt
- fundraising support and tips to help you smash your £150 target
- the opportunity to take part in this iconic marathon running event
- a chance to do something amazing for children.
Whether you want a charity place or already have your own place for the Virtual TCS London Marathon, you can sign up to join #TeamNSPCC.
We also need runners for the 2023 TCS London Marathon in London!

“The day included terrific highs and lows, what kept us going was the cheers from complete strangers and our family and friends. You finish and you wonder 'How did I do that?’. Best feeling ever!”
“The wind and rain didn’t stop me achieving my goal! It was great to take the marathon at my own pace and loved having my own personal finish line.. made by my mum.”
"We loved running together! We battled through the wind and rain, but knowing we were doing it for an amazing charity made it all worthwhile.”
