Do you want to run the iconic London Marathon and  help end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors while you do? Join The Big Issue Foundation team for the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 21st April 2019.

What are the benefits of joining The Big Issue Foundation team? Well, not only will you get advice and support with your training and fundraising all the way up to race day and beyond, an enthusiastic cheering team on the day, and you also get the much sort after official Big Issue Foundation running jersey which we hope you will wear with pride, knowing that your fundraising will be making a BIG impact for the people that need it the most.

The events team will go the extra mile to support you on your journey! We have a small London Marathon team which means we can provide plenty of bespoke support and advice for your fundraising. And, if you already have a place through the ballot you won’t have a target – just raise as much as you can to support our work.
