Virgin Money London Marathon

An enormous thank you to all our runners who completed the 2019 London Marathon to raise funds for Carers Trust’s work to support unpaid carers across the UK. Between them they have raised a whopping £27,071.

London Marathon 2020

The London Marathon has been postponed to 4 October 2020. If you are registered for the run and are still able to run in October then please do get in touch with If you are unable to make that date, please get in touch and we will support you as we can.

How our London Marathon runners are making a difference for carers

  • Funds raised by our runners as part of our partnership with the Rank Group will go towards our grants programmes for carers. These grants enable carers to buy essential items they need to help them manage their caring role or support them to have a much-needed break. 
  • Funds raised by The Quilter Foundation will support young carers into positive adulthood.
  • While the money raised by our other inspiring runners will be funding our range of support services for carers.

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!

If you would like to take on another challenge, we still have places for Prudential Ride 100.
