Join #teamSJA

Get your kicks on and take part in this enjoyable and rewarding way to explore our capital city, where you will take in world-famous sights as you tread 26 miles through London.

We have partnered with travel company Discover Adventure for the operation of the London Marathon and Half Marathon Walk. The theme this year is films. The route takes you pass 26 different film locations from classics including Chariots of Fire and The Italian Job, to James Bond and Harry Potter, Bridget Jones' Diary, Love Actually and the Da Vinci Code.

This event is designed to be a challenge and it is vital that you train sufficiently for it. We will supply you with a thorough training guide once you have registered. The more training that you do, the more you will enjoy the experience - and we want you to have the time of your life!

There are two fundraising options available:

Option A: Charity place

  • • Pay reduced registration fee of £49 for a marathon charity place or £25 for a half marathon charity place
  • • Raise a minimum of £80 - £40 will go to St John Ambulance and £40 will go to Discover Adventure to cover the costs of the event
  • • Anything you raise above £80 will be donated to St John Ambulance.


Option B: Own place

  • • Pay £69 for marathon own place or £49 for half marathon own place
  • • There is no minimum sponsorship target, but any funds you do raise would be hugely appreciated.



Walking amongst famous London landmarks on the big day was great motivation! I am really proud to have pushed myself so that first aid can help change outcomes in emergencies.
