Join the world’s biggest marathon and raise funds to help end the housing emergency. Take on the famous 26.2 mile route from Greenwich Park into the heart of central London.

Running the TCS London Marathon is an epic achievement. Whether you’re a new starter or a marathon regular, we’ll help you cross that finish line feeling good.

We'll provide you with all the support you need before the marathon, from training sessions to nutrition tips. We'll also be there on the day, cheering for you at three key locations with your supporters. Professional photographers will also be there to capture all your special moments.

The housing crisis is now a national emergency. We believe that a safe home is a fundamental need and basic moral right. By fundraising for us in the London Marathon, you can join our fight to defend that right. 

The support from the Shelter team was amazing. Thank you very much for the opportunity to run a great marathon for such a worthwhile cause.
