London Marathon – 23 April 2017

London marathon runners

Thank you so much to all our 2016 runners! We have now closed our 2017 ballot due to a high volume of interest.  All our 2017 places have now been allocated. If you have your own place, see below, or if you're interested in running for us in 2018, please email

Got your own place?

If you have your own London Marathon place, joining Team Marsden is a great opportunity to help us create a future beyond cancer. We'll be with you every step of the way to help you through training and fundraising, providing a running vest, fundraising guides and one-to-one support throughout your whole running journey. 

If you're interested in joining our team, then contact Rachel Johnston by email or call 0208 915 6496.

We provide our runners with dedicated support in the run-up and after the event, a pre and post marathon party where you can meet other Team Marsden runners and some of the fundraising team, and a Facebook group to get all the answers to your training questions.

Royal Marsden Runners group

This is a space where runners can chat and share advice, training and fundraising tips among themselves and with qualified personal trainers. A selection of images from the group's 2016 London Marathon can be found here
