London Marathon
Sunday 3 October 2021

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the UK’s most iconic and prestigious sporting events, combining elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising all in one race! Starting in Greenwich, the 26.2 mile-long course runs through the streets of London, over Tower Bridge, and carries victorious athletes across the famous finish line on The Mall. The 2021 race returns to the London course after all the disruption the previous year due to Coronavirus.

National Eczema Society has a small number of Gold Bond places to allocate to our supporters. We welcome enquiries from runners who understand just how tough it can be living with eczema and are passionate about raising awareness and funds for National Eczema Society! The Marathon is an important source of funding that enables us to support the many people living with eczema who need our help.

Due to the cost of the places and the small number that we hold, we do ask runners to commit to raising a minimum £2,000 for their Marathon place. This can be raised through sponsorship and/or a combination of other fundraising activities.

Also, if you’ve been successful in securing a place through the public ballot for 2021, then please do consider supporting us! Email for more information.
