London Marathon 2025

21st April

Greenwich Park, London

Cost: £100 deposit plus minimum sponsorship of £1,650

Event Details

The London Marathon is one of the most famous running events in the world. Every year, over 40,000 runners get the privilege of bounding stride after stride through the streets of the magnificent and historical capital of England. 

Some run for personal achievement, some want to tick off a bucket list activity, some run to raise money for their favourite charity, and others run to provide remembrance and reflection for a relative they may have lost. 

Many people even choose to run in outrageous fancy dress: from giant shoes and London buses to superheroes and a wide range of animals! 

Why run for LOROS 

Whether it’s your first marathon or you are a seasoned pro, you’ll have tens of thousands of people screaming encouragement as crowds line the streets of the nation’s capital..  

LOROS relies on people like you to raise much-needed funds. With your valuable support, we can improve the lives of patients and their families in their time of need.  

To give you an idea of what that help looks like, when your sponsorship reaches £1650, your support could pay for a mobile arm device to keep patients with motor neurone disease able to eat independently for as long as possible. Runners just like you have enabled us to do amazing things here at the hospice - let’s make the London Marathon 2025 an even bigger success!
