As a fundraising event, there is no race in the world that comes close to the London Marathon. Thousands of runners take to the streets of London to raise money for charity, many in fancy dress, hoping to stand out as a rhino, football mascot, giant tree, or London Landmark! More than three quarters of competitors now run for a good cause and a third of all entry places are offered by charitable organisations.

KIDS has 35 Golden Bond places available each year. If you feel confident in raising the minimum sponsorship target of £1400 (plus an additional £100 non-refundable registration fee) then we'd love to have you on our team.

Why run with us?

  • We are the charity for disabled children, young people and their families aged 0-25. Our vision is a world in which all disabled children and young people realise their aspirations and their right to an inclusive community which supports them and their families, and you can help us achieve that!
  • Being a part of #teamKIDS means that money you raise goes straight towards supporting our vital services for disabled children across the country.

How we show our appreciation!
You can expect lots of support from KIDS as we help you along your journey towards race day. Think training plans, fundraising tips and a friendly KIDS' contact who will answer all of your questions, worries and will listen to all of your running updates!

On marathon day we have two cheering points, eager to make lots of noise and show you how much we appreciate everything you've done as a KIDS' team member for the families we support. We invite your friends and family to join us too and will provide you with a pack in advance of race day to help them negotiate race day as a supporter.

Following the race, we'll be waiting to meet and congratulate you! At the post race reception, you'll be invited to enjoy a much need massage and some light refreshments along with your friends and family.
