Run for the Royal British Legion at the TCS London Marathon

Join Team RBL for the TCS London Marathon and help us to ensure that nobody who has served in the Armed Forces is disadvantaged because of the sacrifices they have made.

Whether you’re new to this iconic event or you’ve run marathons before, we will support you all the way. As a Team RBL runner you will receive:

  • an invitation to our bespoke training event
  • expert online training guides and advice
  • a personalised Team RBL technical running vest
  • a digital fundraising pack, bursting with top fundraising tips
  • the loudest cheers along the course from our dedicated team
  • a complimentary massage and refreshments at our post-race reception
  • ongoing support from the Royal British Legion Events team and our community of Team RBL runners

Run for the Royal British Legion and you'll be helping us to provide financial, social and emotional support to millions of people who have served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces, as well as their families.

We’ve been here for 100 years and will continue to be here for as long as we’re needed – but we can't do this without you.

How your support makes a difference:

  • £65 could pay for repairs to mobility equipment to ensure a Veteran can remain mobile in their local community
  • £135 could pay for a bed to ensure someone has somewhere appropriate to sleep in their home
  • £500 could provide training and development for our Admiral Nurses to provide specialist support, information and advice to families supporting relatives with dementia
  • £600 could provide an Employment Support Grant to someone to fund their training or education after leaving the Armed Forces, helping them secure employment

The Royal British Legion is equipped for the future, and we wrap our arms around those who need us. Whatever the issue, we have the resources, experience and weight to fight for those that we support, ensuring they get the help they need and deserve. Once you have served, we have your back for the rest of your life.

We would love to welcome you to Team RBL. By taking part in the TCS London Marathon and raising funds for us, we can make sure that those who have served are being looked after no matter what challenges they face. To get going, click here.
