On 6 August 2020, the London Marathon event organisers announced the cancellation of the 2020 Virgin London Marathon. You can read the FAQs here.

If you are a current #TeamOrange runner for the London Marathon 2020, you will have already received an email from us. We will be in touch shortly with further details and next steps.


Join Muscular Dystrophy UK in one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Our #TeamOrange members tell us the London Marathon is much more than just a marathon; it’s an experience of a lifetime.

Registration is £100 and we require you to raise a minimum sponsorship of £1,750.

We’ve done the London Marathon before, but never for a cause so close to our hearts. Picturing Freya, we ran faster, tried that little bit harder. It feels amazing to have crossed the finish line for her. The support along the way was like nothing else I have seen before. If you are going to do a marathon, make it London and run it for #TeamOrange.

  • support from THREE enthusiastic #TeamOrange cheer squads along the route
  • access to our lively and friendly Facebook group to chat with other members of the team
  • a post-event celebration where, as one previous runner said, we treat you ‘like a rock star’, with massages, showers and refreshments, just a stroll away from the finish line
