Represent St Clare at one of the all time greatest sporting challenges!

Want to experience the euphoria of taking part in one of the world’s largest fundraising events? The Virgin Money London Marathon is taking place on Sunday 28th April. Are you up to the challenge?

We have 5 Gold Bond Places on offer for 2019, to join Team St Clare and help us to raise vital funding for our hospice. We ask that runners who are successful in in obtaining one of our Gold Bond places pledge to raise a minimum of £2,000 in sponsorship.

If you are lucky enough to secure your own place through the ballot, we would love you to join our London Marathon team, too! By supporting St Clare and fundraising for us, you will receive support from our Challenges and Events team – and have the satisfaction of helping to fund our fantastic care.

All our Team St Clare marathon runners will be supported throughout their training, including an invitation to our helpful marathon evenings. Meet some of our past runners and get tips on training, as well as advice on how to avoid injury from experienced runners and qualified sports therapists.
