Running the London Marathon for charity is a popular way to improve your fitness, take on a challenge and raise money for a great cause at the same time. Arguably one of the biggest events in the marathon calendar, the London Marathon sees adult runners of all ages and abilities run over the start line and begin the 26-mile journey through the capital – and this year it’s your turn! The London Marathon sits amongst the balloted marathon events and so entering and running for a charity is a great way of ensuring that your place is secured! Alder Hey Children’s charity would encourage anyone to take on the challenge of The London Marathon and raise money for our fantastic cause at the same time.
