We have one place for the 2021 Virgin London Marathon and are looking for someone to run for us! With the 2020 event taking place as a virtual event, we can't guarantee at this point where you'll be running, but we can say that running the Marathon for us will be an unforgettable experience.

With the public ballot as competitive as ever, now is the time to take your place in the FTCT marathon runners hall of fame. We are taking expressions of interest now, with a view to announcing the final runner by 1st December 2020.

Why run for FTCT?

As a small charity, we sadly can't buy London Marathon Gold Bond places, so have to wait until we are lucky enough to win one in the charity ballot. Well, we were lucky this year so now have one special place to fill!

If successfully selected, you would need to raise a minimum of £2,500 for our charity.

This is essential, because like many other charities, we have lots a large proportion of the funds we would otherwise have raised throughout mass events throughout 2020. 

It isn't difficult to raise funds once you get the hang of it and we will be here to help you along the way. 

We’ll be your biggest supporters – providing your running vest, helping with fundraising ideas and giving you the encouragement and motivation to help you reach your goal.

How your donations would help

You donations will help us to continue providing our grants programme, which last year helped over 820 children in families whose income was negatively affective by Covid-19 and other challenging circumstances.  

Every week, we give out more than £13,000 in grants, for items including new school uniform for children, so they can go to school in clothes that fit and don't have to feel embarrassed. Or a new mattresses for children, to help them get a proper night's sleep. Or speech therapy sessions for a child with language delay. Read some of the stories of the children we have helped. 

What our past runners said

"The fashion retail market has been incredibly challenging so I chose to run for the FTCT, which supports families who work in my industry – it’s a wonderful caring charity. Having run the marathon several times before, I can honestly say that doing it for a good cause definitely has spurred me on and helped me stay motivated during long arduous runs. All in all, the London Marathon is the best experience EVER!” Two time FTCT Marathon runner, Rachel Bowman, Hobbs.
