London Marathon

Join Team YMCA and help young people build a better future

If you’ve been inspired to take part in the world famous London Marathon, we have places in the 2015 YMCA team and would love to hear from you.  Please contact download the YMCA Endland London Marathon application form and apply by Friday 30th January 2015.

The fundraising target for each participant is £1,700, which goes towards our life changing work with young people.

What to expect from us

We know that training and running the marathon is a big challenge to undertake so we’ll be with you every step of the way.

As part of Team YMCA you will receive:

  • A fundraising and training pack full of tips and advice
  • A high-quality YMCA running vest
  • Regular phone calls and newsletters with personalised support
  • Support on the day from our dedicated cheering points
  • A post-race reception where you can enjoy a well-deserved massage and refreshments.

“The support I received from YMCA England was excellent and far more personalised than other charities I have run for.”
Sarah Carrington, YMCA England London Marathon runner

Volunteering on London Marathon Day

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers for our YMCA cheering point on the marathon route and/or our post-race reception in Westminster.

As a volunteer, you will be briefed by a YMCA event manager and will be provided with a YMCA-branded t-shirt to wear. You will also receive complimentary refreshments and some travel expenses.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like to join Team YMCA, please contact YMCA England today.
