Run the London Marathon

In 2024, we'll were proud to cheer on over 50 amazing #TeamShootingStar runners as they took on the iconic London Marathon. For some, it was their first marathon; for others, their first dressed as fish! Discover some of their training stories and what it’s was like to be part of the team, and maybe even be inspired to enter the ballot for next year. 

Be part of the 2025 London Marathon

Inspired? Apply for the official ballot between Saturday, April 20th, and Friday, April 26th. While we have a limited number of charity places, the ballot is your best chance to get a place, and if you run for us through the ballot, you can set your own fundraising target.

My marathon story

Go Joel!

Our amazing patron Joel Dommett will be part of #TeamShootingStar this year, running as the Piranha from The Masked Singer. He and Danny Jones from McFly visited the hospice and even took part in a film to help promote his fundraising.
