Take on the biggest event in the running calendar and help support patients and families when they need it most.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is quite simply – legendary. Not only is it bucket-list worthy with one of the most iconic routes imaginable, it’s also the world’s largest fundraising event…and we want to help you be a part of it!

Finding your motivation

Our patients and their families face tough challenges every single day and staff at the RUH are always there to guide, support and care for them, day in and day out. The funds raised from your run will help us to invest in extra-special equipment and facilities that make a real difference to everyone at the hospital, that goes above and beyond what standard NHS funding can afford. In 2019, we’ll also be celebrating our 20th year of fundraising (over £20 million has been raised for the hospital over those years!), so if you’re thankful for the RUH and want us to help us continue our work with the experience of a lifetime… then why not run the Virgin Money London Marathon to support our patients.
