Following the news the Virgin Money London Marathon is being postponed by the race organisers due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we will be in touch with all CLIC Sargent runners shortly to discuss all of your options.
We recognise all of the incredible efforts you and Team Young Lives have put in to your training and fundraising, and like you, we are also very sad and share your disappointment. We will keep you updated with any developments and will be in touch very soon to explain all of your options.
Please do bear with us as there are many factors outside of our control that will affect options going forward. Thank you so much for your patience and support.
The London Marathon is the greatest fundraising event on the planet
LOOKING FOR A CHARITY PLACE?
Applications for charity places have now closed for 2020. If you’re superkeen, applications for 2021 will open on 26 April 2020.
If you’re interested in taking part in another World Major Marathon, we do have places in the Berlin Marathon.
ALREADY GOT A PLACE?
Lucky you! You can still join Team Young Lives and support children and young people with cancer.
We don’t ask you to raise a minimum amount, we simply ask that you raise as much as you can.
When he was 23, Toby received a shock diagnosis of Hodgkin lymphoma on the day of the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2017. Two years on, and cancer free, Toby took on the 26.2 miles challenge that is the Virgin Money London Marathon in aid of CLIC Sargent – and smashed it in under four hours.
Run for children and young people with cancer, like Toby
"Running for CLIC Sargent made the experience even more unforgettable. I met some amazing people who supported me throughout training and on the day."

Cancer is shocking, overwhelming, isolating… and completely unfair. Especially when you’re young. It takes over your life. Treatment is gruelling and your ambitions and dreams suddenly seem very far away.
We get that. That’s why CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives. We provide grants and free accommodation close to hospital to help with spiralling costs. Our care teams are on hand to help families with everything from getting benefits to treatment closer to home. And we lobby the government to make sure they get the support they’re entitled to. We’re here to make sure young cancer patients can focus on getting their lives back on track.
