About the event

The Virgin Money London Marathon is a must-do for any running enthusiast. Whether this is your first marathon or you're a veteran, get your place on the starting line with Team Scope.

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 skyscrapers 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.

Ballot place

If you already have a ballot place or 'good for age' place in the London Marathon, the good news is you can still run with Scope, we’d love to have you on the team!

Join Team Scope with your own place

You’ll get all the same support as our charity place runners but without a minimum sponsorship pledge. We just ask that you raise as much as you can. 

It was truly a remarkable experience, made even more memorable by the excellent ways you handled our participation.

The difference you can make

By signing up to the London Marathon with Scope, you'll be raising vital funds to help us end inequality for disabled people.

We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives.

£450 could cover the cost of 50 phone calls to the Scope helpline, providing free, independent and impartial advice and support on issues that matter to disabled people and their families.

£1,000 could support a disabled person through one of our employment programmes to gain the confidence and skills needed to find work.

£2,059 could cover the cost of running Sleep Right for one month, supporting disabled children get the sleep they need.

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.

Help this great work to continue. Use your London Marathon place to run with Team Scope and be a Disability Gamechanger.
