2020 Team Sparks runners: what does this mean for you?

We know how much effort our amazing runners have put into their training and fundraising so far and we cannot thank them enough.

We’re in conversation with the team at London Marathon to understand exactly what this means for our charity places. We will be working through the options as quickly as possible and we'll be in touch with everyone in Team Sparks in the coming weeks to let you know your options

A Virtual 40th Race

Everyone with a place in the 2020 event will still have the chance to take part in The 40th Race by running the famous 26.2 mile marathon distance from home or anywhere in the world on the course of their choice on Sunday 4 October.

We will be in touch with further details of the Virtual Event early next week.
