London Marathon 2022

Start date: 02/10/2022

Take on the challenge – run the iconic London Marathon in 2022!

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to join our team running in support of the Gurkha Welfare Trust. 

Thinking about tackling your first marathon? This is a chance to run one of the most famous marathons in the world, taking you through the heart of London and past many spectacular landmarks. Join thousands of runners on this impressive course, cheered on by huge crowds all the way.

Sign up early so you have plenty of time to plan your training and kickstart your fundraising efforts.

Your place in the London Marathon will be free, but we ask you to set a fundraising goal of £2,500. Our fundraisers pack will set you off to a ‘running’ start with several unique ideas for raising money.  We also have a fantastic athletics coach who will be sharing advice and training notes to help you with your preparation. Our team will be supporting you all the way!

By raising sponsorship you will help support our team working in Nepal, keeping Gurkha veterans and widows safe and giving them the means to live with dignity.

In 2022 the marathon will take place in the autumn rather than its traditional spring slot, following disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The Event Director is confident that it will be a great success:

“We believe that by moving the 2022 event to October we give ourselves the best chances of welcoming the world to the streets of London, enabling tens of millions to be raised for good causes and giving people the certainty that their hard work and training will allow them to experience the amazing crowds cheering them every step of the way from Greenwich to Westminster.”
