Join RNIB for the world’s most famous marathon and help us support more people with sight loss.
Every day 250 people in the UK start losing their sight. Right now, we can only reach one in three people who need our help. Join Team RNIB for the Virgin Money London Marathon and help us reach them all.
London Marathon is the most iconic event on the running calendar. The 26.2 mile route through the heart of the capital is lined with cheering crowds and takes in London’s legendary landmarks. The incredible atmosphere makes it a truly unforgettable experience and definitely one to tick off the bucket list.
Registration has now closed for charity places in the 2019 London Marathon, and we have a full team of over 100 amazing runners.
If you entered the 2019 London Marathon ballot and were lucky enough to secure a place, you can still join us. You’ll receive all the same support as our charity runners and we suggest you aim to raise £500 in sponsorship.
Join Team RNIB and help us support people when they need us most. In return we’ll give you everything you need to smash your running and fundraising goals. You’ll receive from us:
Fundraising pack full of top tips and advice
Personalised training plan and advice from Team RNIB’s personal trainer
Professional RNIB running vest
Friendly and personalised support from our events team
Regular updates to support your training and fundraising
RNIB cheerers to support you on race day
Post-race party and sports massage
How does your fundraising help?
Every day 250 people are told they're losing their sight. However, right now many people receive no support at all when they’re given this news. We want to change that.
We’re on a mission to make sure every UK hospital has a dedicated Sight Loss Advisor. Your fundraising will help us be there when people need us most, as we grow our network of expert advisors and reach everyone who needs our emotional and practical support.
