Join Team Shelter at the Virgin Money London Marathon

Have your own ballot place in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020? Join Team Shelter and you can help make a difference to people facing homelessness.

If you’ve got your own place, and want to join the fight against homelessness and bad housing, run with Team Shelter.

You’ll be joining an amazing team of runners and receive the best support available — whether it’s your first big race, or you’re a seasoned runner!

All our fundraisers get the very best from us, including:

Shelter technical running top

Your own personal contact at Shelter to answer your questions

A workshop to boost your training and fundraising skills

Post-race reception (where you’ll get a hero’s welcome)

Invitation to our training days

Training plans created by our running partners Let's Get Running

Fundraising advice and ideas

Post-race sports massage

And there’s more! We also offer:

  • Access to our Facebook Marathon group, where you can swap tips and get to know your fellow Team Shelter runners
  • A meet and greet with us when you pick up your race number at the Virgin Money London Marathon Expo
  • Motivation to keep you going mile after mile from our amazing cheer team
  • Professional photos that capture your run

Join Team Shelter
The support from the Shelter team was amazing, and the afterparty (and massage) was just what I needed! Thank you very much for the opportunity to run a great marathon for such a worthwhile cause.

Why your help is essential

We really hope you decide to run with Team Shelter. Not only will you be joining an amazing community of dedicated supporters who’ve chosen to run in aid of our work, you’ll also be making a huge difference to people coping with housing.

Every 13 minutes, a family in England becomes homeless. And fundraisers like you mean that when they’ve got nowhere to turn, we can be there for them.

Last year, thanks to people like you, we helped over 10,000 people and households in London alone via our helpline and face-to-face services.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference. Thank you.
