Distance: 26.2 miles

Be part of the largest running event in the world and do something amazing for the British Skin Foundation at the same time! Thousands of runners have raised over £600 million for good causes since the marathon began over 30 years ago, and the race has helped us put tens of thousands of pounds towards skin disease research. We would love for you to join Team BSF and run the 26.2 mile course for the British Skin Foundation in 2018.
