Virgin Money London Marathon 2021

Get your spot at the iconic London Marathon and #LetTheKidsWin!

Joining 40,000 participants, you’ll run 26.2 miles, passing some of London’s famous landmarks.

This year’s London Marathon takes place on Sunday 3rd October and in exchange for a charity place, we ask you raise a minimum of £1,500. This enables us to cover the cost of your place and ensures we have the funds to continue providing our vital services to those who need it most.

If you would like more information or you're interested in signing up, please get in touch with our Community Fundraising Team using the form below or by giving us a call on 0345 10 80 111.

Why Children 1st?

When you sign up for a charity place with Children 1st we will provide you with:

  • A welcome pack with sponsor forms and helpful information to kick start your fundraising.
  • A Children 1st t-shirt to wear proudly on the day of your race.
  • Training hints and tips to help you reach your potential.
  • Dedicated support from a member of our fundraising team to help you every step of the way.

Now more than ever, Scotland’s children and families need your support, as they face the additional stresses and challenges of recovering from the impact of coronavirus. We will continue to be there providing practical and emotional support to give them help and relief.

Our work to keep Scotland’s children safe will continue to be needed more than ever.

What our participants say:

“I’ve loved the experience. The encouragement and support of Children 1st has been amazing."

“Brilliant support throughout the event, really good team. Thank you very much.”



This event is not connected to Children 1st and so decisions on the event going ahead are made by the event organisers directly. Your safety is our utmost priority and we urge you at all times to follow COVID-19 government guidelines. If this event is cancelled due to COVID guidelines we hope for the event organiser to offering a virtual alternative so your funds raised and training still makes an impact.
