London Marathon 2025
Sunday 27th April

The London Marathon is one of the UK’s most iconic and super popular sporting events. It combines elite athletics, mass participation and record-breaking fundraising all in one race! Starting in Greenwich, the 26.2 mile-long course passes through the streets of London, over Tower Bridge, and then onto Buckingham Palace and across the famous finish line on The Mall.

National Eczema Society has a small number of charity places in the 2025 Marathon for our supporters. We have received a large number of applications for our places in the 2025 race and unfortunately we are not accepting any new applications.

The London Marathon is a very important fundrasier for our charity, enabling us to continue supporting the many people living with eczema who need our help. That’s why we ask our runners to commit to raising a minimum of £2,000 for their National Eczema Society place in the London Marathon. This can be raised through sponsorship and/or a combination of other fundraising activities.
