Event facilities

Raising £1000 could pay for an Automated External Defibrillator (AED), which can prove vital to the resuscitation process following a cardiac arrest.

Important update

Due to the cancellation of the London Marathon 2020 event we are no longer accepting applications for next year's marathon. 

Ballot place runners

If you are lucky enough to secure a place in the race through the London Marathon ballot, we'd love you to join #TeamSJA. You'll get the same support as our charity place runners, and in return we ask you to fundraise for our charity.

Join #TeamSJA as a ballot place runner.

We'll support you every step of the way

We’ll be there to help you meet your fundraising target and to make the most out of your marathon experience.

Our support package includes:

  • professional training support
  • fundraising tips and fun promotional tools, including regular newsletters to keep you motivated
  • a St John Ambulance running vest
  • cheers of support from the St John Ambulance team at our dedicated cheer point – including our 1,400 volunteers who will be providing first aid on the day
  • an information day to prepare you for the race
  • a post-race reception on race day with refreshments, a massage, and goody bags.

Got a question?

Many of my close friends and myself could have been seriously injured without the help of St John Ambulance. I loved the opportunity to give something back. - Sam, runner
