For everything you need to know about before, during and after the race, including how to get your race number and where to send your family and friends on the day.

Thanks a billion!

By April, the London Marathon will have raised a billion pounds for charity.

We'd just like to say thanks a billion to all our amazing runners, past and present.

Without you and your determination to get out there and run, rain or shine, without your misty morning training runs and midnight dashes, we couldn't continue to be there for older people.

Why run for Age UK?

When someone's deperately lonely and just needs to hear another voice, we are there.

When they've lost the person they love the most, we're there to help them find the strength to carry on.

When an older person is forced to live in a freezing house because they're worried about the cost of heating, we give them the support they need to regain control.

We're here because everyone deserves a place to turn to when times are tough. And with your support, we can continue to be there.

I'll be running in memory of 2 marvelous people β€“ my Nana and Grandad. Age UK's motto is love later life, which is a big reason I wanted to run for them. My grandparents had such a love for life.
