Virgin Money London Marathon 2016

Greenwich Park, London

Every childhood is worth running for

We're the official charity partner for this year's Virgin Money London Marathon.

This year we're asking our marathon runners to raise £2.3 million, to help us transform ChildLine. 

So whether you're battling blisters, pounding the pavement, or resisting the urge to hit snooze before an early morning run – it's worth fighting for. 

From our weekly training plans to our new Team NSPCC fundraising app, we have all the help and support you need to help you get in shape and help you reach your fundraising target.


Making every mile and #everystep count

With your help we can reach our target
