Are you up for the challenge?

Have you got what it takes to be part of the 2024 CLDF London Marathon team?

The London Marathon is not only an iconic event for runners around the world, it’s a huge fundraising opportunity for the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation. As we build back from the pandemic, this has never been more important to us.

If you’re up for the challenge of not only completing 26.2 miles, but also pledging to raise a minimum of £2,000 before 21st April 2024, we’d like to hear from you. Please fill in the application form here.

Let’s make April 21st 2024 a day to truly remember!

Do your London Marathon your way

Can’t make it down to London on the big day? Worry not – you can still take part and get your medal!

The Virtual London Marathon takes place on April 21, the same day as the actual event but the course is entirely up to you.  You could be powering up hills, taking it easy along country lanes or maybe doing 20 laps of your local park. As long as you clock up 26.2 miles, you are a winner!

It’s £30 to enter and there is no minimum sponsorship level. Set your own target and have the satisfaction of knowing that every penny you raise will be going where it’s needed.

No travelling or accommodation to worry about. You just think about the running . So, what could be simpler?

You can enter the Virtual London Marathon by following this link. And don’t forget to tell us. We want to support you every step of the way!
