Why run with #TeamNSPCC


You’ll receive an NSPCC running vest that you can personalise with your name, so we can cheer you on as you run past our many cheer points! We’ll also send you extra NSPCC goodies if you reach our fundraising milestones.


We have 6 cheer points along the route so you will never be far from a morale boosting cheer from us! We also have a heroes' reception waiting for you on the Mall at the finish line, where you can enjoy fun, food and fizz and a sports massage.


You’ll receive fundraising support via email, have access to a personalised training plan from our training partners Full Potential and be invited to regular Zoom calls where you can talk to the training experts!

Together, we can make 2022 a better year for children


During last year’s lockdowns, our helpline saw a 60 per cent increase in contacts from people worried about children experiencing online sexual abuse. And Childline has seen an 11 per cent increase in the number of counselling sessions about online sexual abuse.

With your help, we can keep fighting for every childhood. We want to answer every call, reach every child who needs us, and keep adapting to whatever challenges this year throws at us.

Help us be here for them and join #TeamNSPCC for the 2022 London Marathon.
