About the event

On October 3rd, 100,000 people will be taking part in the biggest marathon ever staged in the world. 50,000 will be running the streets of the capital and 50,000 will be doing it from wherever they are in the country, completing the marathon distance over 24 hours and choosing their own route.

If you secured a ballot place in the virtual offering of this event, we'd love to have you join our team and help us reach more people living with a mental health problem. Prioritising mental health has never been more important than it is right now, and your support means we can continue to provide life-saving information. 

Please note that we do not have any additional places in the virtual event to allocate, so you must already have a place secured in the event to join the team.
