The Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon

You can also support Carers Trust by taking part in the Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon. The event takes place on Sunday 3 October 2021. You can complete the run from home, or on your course of choice, it’s completely up to you. You’ll have 24 hours to complete the distance and you can take as long as you need to complete it. You will still receive the exclusive London Marathon finisher t-shirt and medal.

By joining the Carers Trust team in either event, you will receive:

  • Your own Carers Trust running vest, with your name on it.
  • Updates, support and encouragement from Carers Trust.
  • The chance to make an amazing difference to the lives of unpaid carers.
The important stuff
  •  There is no registration fee to run for Carers Trust, but we do ask that you commit to raising the minimum fundraising target of £2,100. For the virtual marathon, we ask that you raise a minimum of £300.
  • We receive more applications than the number of places we have available, so we give our places based on the quality of your application. We are particularly interested in the reasons you want to run for Carers Trust and how you’ll reach your fundraising target. Places are not given out on a first come first served basis.
  • We will aim to respond to all applications within a week of receipt.

If you are interested in running and raising money for Carers Trust, that’s fantastic news! Please let us know by emailing fundraising@carers.org and we will send you an application form and answer any questions you might have.

If you have your own ballot place for the London Marathon, and would like to run for Carers Trust, we would love to have you on our team! Please get in touch by emailing our Fundraising team or calling us on 0800 061 4838.
