Run the London Marathon for SignHealth

The Virgin Money London Marathon

Next Race

  • 3 October 2021
  • London
  • 26.2 miles


The Covid-19 pandemic has meant that this year’s London Marathon has been postponed to Sunday 3 October 2021.

We are no longer accepting applications for our charity London marathon places for the 2021 race.

As with many other charities, the Coronavirus pandemic has had a major impact on SignHealth’s income at a time when our services are needed most. We also quickly responded to the unprecedented new challenges for the Deaf community posed by the widespread use of face masks and phone consultations in healthcare settings, as well as the void of official accessible information about the virus and the related restrictions. These additional projects were vital and continue to be widely used and shared widely. Your fundraising efforts will have a massive impact on what we are able to respond to next.


#TeamSignHealth runners are provided with a personalised running vest, dedicated SignHealth contact and a fundraising pack, full of tips to help you reach your fundraising potential.

About the event

The Virgin Money London Marathon is a must-do for any running enthusiast. Whether this is your first marathon or you’re a veteran, get your place on the starting line with #TeamSignHealth.

Your London Marathon experience

You’ll start the iconic 26.2 miles in Greenwich Park accompanied by 40,000 other runners. Along the route, you’ll run past the Cutty Sark, over the world-famous Tower Bridge and through the high-rises of Canary Wharf. The streets will be lined with spectators as you run towards the finish line in front of Buckingham Palace.

Ballot place

If you already have a ballot place or ‘good for age’ place in the London Marathon, the good news is you can still run with SignHealth. We’ll support you and just ask that you raise as much as you can.
