London Marathon

Bliss runner receiving high five while running the london marathon

Join #TeamBliss at The London Marathon, one of the greatest running events in the world! The route takes in many of London's best landmarks including Buckingham Palace, The Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf.

How to join:

Register for a charity place

Sign up for £50 (fundraising target of £2500) to join Team Bliss at next year's London Marathon.

Places are very limited and will be allocated based on strength of application. After you've applied, we'll be in touch to let you know the next steps.

Use your own place

The 2025 ballot has now closed and the results will be announced in late June. If you are lucky and get a ballot place at this event, we'd love to have you join Team Bliss.

You’ll receive the same support and benefits as our charity place runners but there is no minimum fundraising pledge – just raise as much as you can.

Date:  Sunday 27th April, 2025

Location:  Central London

Registration fee:  £50

Fundraising pledge:  £2500

Join Team Bliss and you'll receive:

Pre-run support: We'll support you every step of the way with ideas to reach your fundraising goal, providing support from our personal trainer about nutrition and training.

On the day perks: You'll have the loudest cheers from our team and we have exclusive photographers for Bliss runners. We host a post-race reception where you can have a shower, a massage courtesy of our volunteer therapists, and food and drink.

Community: You'll be invited to join an online forum to connect with our events team and other Team Bliss runners to share training and fundraising tips.

A Bliss running vest: You'll get your own Bliss running vest to wear on the day.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the opportunity you gave me, it’s been a huge privilege to be able to run and raise money for Bliss, a charity that has meant so much to me.

Emma, 2024 Team Bliss runner
