London Marathon 2020

YST London Marathon 2020
Support #TribeYST at the most iconic marathon as our team of 12 runners take on the 26.2 mile course through the streets of London.

We would like to thank the nine runners, heroes and Youth Sport Trust champions who took part in the Virtual London Marathon on Sunday 04 October. To still be at the starting line after all the delays and other turbulence affecting our lives over the past six months, was incredible.

We are so thankful for their support during this ongoing global pandemic with its inevitable consequences for children and young people. There has never been a more important time for us to raise awareness of the power of sport to heal and protect a generation so affected by COVID-19. 

If you've been inspired by this year's London Marathon, applications for a YST Golden Bond place open in January 2021. To express your interest early, contact us.
