Your London Marathon experience
You'll start the iconic 26.2 miles in Greenwich Park accompanied by 40,000 other runners. Along the route, you'll run past the Cutty Sark, over the world-famous Tower Bridge and through the high-rises of Canary Wharf. The streets will be lined by hundreds of thousands of spectators as you run towards the Mall for a real hero's welcome in front of Buckingham Palace.

In your application please tell us why you want to run with Scope and how you plan to raise the £2,000 minimum sponsorship. The more detail the better! We will be in touch to discuss your application.
