Run for Rainbows at the London Marathon 2020

The London Marathon is not only one of the most iconic marathons in the world, but it's also the largest annual fundraising event on the planet - and in 2020, you could run it for Rainbows.

Over 30,000 people will be on the start line at Greenwich Park on Sunday 26 April 2019, and you could join them in your special Rainbow running top - running for us, and helping support local children and young people with life-limiting conditions. As one of the most popular running events on the calendar, the London Marathon is an event you won't want to miss - whether you're a first-timer or seasoned runner. Throughout the 26.2, the streets of London will be packed with supporters cheering you on, while each step you take will help to brighten short lives. During the whole challenge, from the moment you sign up to when you cross the finish line at The Mall, and beyond we will be there offering you support.

Those who are part of Team Rainbows will recieve:

  • Fundraising support, with a dedicated member of the Rainbows Team there for you to help you reach your fundraising goals
  • Guidance through training with training plans, runs and social pages where you can get tips and advice from other runners
  • Your own Rainbows running vest or technical t-shirt for you to wear with pride on the day

On the day, Rainbows will also be there to cheer you around the route and once you've crossed the finish line you can make your way to our post-race reception, where we can celebrate your fantastic achievement with you!

Date: 26th April 2020
Venue: Greenwich Park, London
Cost: A deposit of £100 and a minimum pledge of £2,500 is required for one of our guaranteed places. Alternatively, if you get your own place in the ballot, we'd love you to run for us.
