London Marathon 2020

YST London Marathon 2020
Join #TribeYST for the most iconic marathon and be one of 40,000 runners running 26.2 miles through the streets of London.

The Youth Sport Trust are currently looking for runners to take part in the 2020 London Marathon, which takes place on Sunday 26 April, in Greenwich, London. There are currently two ways to run with us - either by applying for one of our charity places or, if you're lucky enough to secure a place through the official ballot, simply choosing to run with us on the day!

In 2020 we'll be celebrating the 25th Anniversary year for the Youth Sport Trust and we are keen to have a London Marathon team which represents everything that our charity means. So, if you are a parent, teacher, sport lover, or someone who really knows how the power of sport can change the lives of young people then please take up the challenge and run with us. 

We are passionate about ensuring that all young people can benefit from the life changing benefits of play and sport – we know that our London Marathon #TribeYST 2020 team will be the best yet! Come and join us and be proud of the charity you are supporting. 

You can find out more about how to get involved below.

I want to run in 2020

We have a limited number of places and the application is now open! Please note that you are required to pay a £50 registration fee if your application is successful and, due to the high demand and limited spaces we have, there is a minimum sponsorship requirement of £2,000. The deadline for applications is Friday 27 September 2019.
