Virgin Money London Marathon
The Trust has a small number of charity places available each year for this world renowned running event.
2019 London Marathon
The next race will take place on 28 April 2019. Please email Clare Pemberton at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in running the London Marathon for us in 2019 (spaces are very limited).
As well as training for the marathon, our 2018 London Marathon runners, Casey, Jennifer, Kirsty, Jordan and Tim, together raised over £4,000 through their fundraising and we cannot thank them enough for their hard work and dedication. Read their stories below.
People say that I must be crazy, trying to run a marathon one month before my wedding but I don't see it like that at all. I love to challenge myself, life's too short to just do the ordinary. I am so proud to be running for the John Muir Trust, I've visited Scotland many times and it's such a special place for me, it's important to preserve it and other wild places for future generations! I love being outdoors and to travel which has made me more aware of the vital work the Trust does. I know it's not going to be easy but I am going to enjoy doing it and the sense of achievement after!

I’m honoured to be running the 2018 London Marathon in support of the John Muir Trust. I’m a nature lover and conservationist at heart. I live in the US in the mountains of upstate New York exactly for the reasons that the John Muir Trust exists – for the beauty and pristine nature of this earth! I’ve always been a runner, but only ventured into long distance running at age 40. After running several marathons including Boston twice, I learned about the World Marathon Majors. I decided to embark upon a journey to complete them all and it certainly is not easy to get into them. To date, I’ve run Boston, Chicago, NYC, and Berlin. I’m beyond excited to run London this April! Thank you for any support of this journey and a great cause!

As an avid outdoorswoman and aspiring marathoner, I’m honoured to be running the London Marathon with the John Muir Trust! I have had the privilege to delight in the granite walls of Yosemite and the towering redwoods of Muir Woods. In America, we have John Muir to thank for these treasures… Running 26.2 miles is one small gesture to return the favour! Thank you for your support as we collectively ensure wild places are preserved and enjoyed for generations to come!

I'm 27 and live in Suffolk, UK. I'm a hockey player by day, and a runner by night (ok that's a lie). I've played Hockey from a very young age, which is how I also got into running. The reason I'm running for the John Muir Trust is because I believe the work they do to protect wild places is fantastic. I think as a species, we could all do more to help, and if I can help a tiny bit by representing the John Muir Trust at the London Marathon, then I'm happy with that.
