Welcome to the London marathon Hub
The postponement of the London marathon means we can’t all run together on the 4th Of October, but you can still take part in the virtual 40th Race and support charities impacted by Covid-19.
Virtual 40th Race
The 40th Race will take place on the 4th October. You'll have 24 hours to complete your 26.2 marathon, and you can walk, run, jog or hop – whatever you'd prefer, it's up to you.
Here for you
JustGiving’s marathon hub is here for you to get your preparation perfect for the big day. Find training tips, fundraising how-to’s, and loads of fun stuff to keep you inspired and motivated along the way.
This year we’re branching out and partnering with Trees for Cities and their friends to plant a tree for every London marathon fundraiser on JustGiving! We’re treemendously excited to support the 2020 London marathon in their ongoing efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of the event and can’t wait to see the impact our community of runners will make.
Why are we doing this?
Well, we love acorny tree pun, but most importantly this is a step in the right direction to being more sustainable. As a technology company for social good we already volunteer for multiple different causes but we can do more, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to do your bit too.
Did you know?
One tree can absorb up to 1.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide over its lifetime.
One plastic bottle has an average of up to 82.8 grams of carbon dioxide,
therefore one tree can mitigate a staggering amount of the carbon footprint of the day.
