If you’ve already bought your place in the virtual London Marathon, we would love to welcome you to the team as an own place runner.
Why you should run virtually with NSPCC
The past 19 months have been difficult for us all. They’ve shown us how vital our services are and how we need to be ready for anything. But they’ve also shown us how much we can do for children when we all join together. By taking part in the Virtual London Marathon, you can help us make 2022 a better year for children.
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 2022 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.”
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 TCS Virtual London Marathon.
