London Marathon

We now have a full team for the famous London Marathon, where the 26.2 mile route takes you along the streets of London to finish on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

If you have a ballot place you can still run with us in April. Just contact Claudia on 020 3242 0357.

Support individuals to live, learn and work as independently as they choose, whatever their ability.

How our runners did in 2018

'Thank you for the opportunity and well done on your awesome work, organisation and making a change in so many lives including mine.'— Grant, 2018 runner

'Delighted to have taken part in the London Marathon yesterday on behalf of Leonard Cheshire.'— Jonathan, 2018 runner

'Just want to say a huge thank you for the opportunity to run London for Leonard Cheshire this year.

‘It was an amazing experience, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and to know it’s helped such a fantastic charity is absolutely amazing!’ — Christie, 2018 runner


8 out of 10 disabled people were not born with their disability, so here's why our fundraising target is £1,800. 

Many have become disabled after an accident, or from a stroke, cancer or developing conditions like multiple sclerosis or motor neurone disease. These life-changing circumstances can stop people in their tracks. Your marathon fundraising will make sure they can live a full life again, and achieve their dreams.

Check out our video to see who you money can support. 

  • £200 could pay to train two teachers in the developing world the skills they need to teach disabled children and non-disabled children together.
  • £800 can buy a touch screen monitor enabling people with limited movement in their hands to use computer equipment.
  • £2,000 could buy a ‘tilt table’ to provide pain relief and help breathing, digestion, bone density and posture for a disabled person with little or no movement in their limbs.

Join us now as an own place runner and we will give you the same support as one of our charity place runners.
