Join Team Macmillan at the 2023 TCS London Marathon
We don’t know about you, but it always gives us shivers watching the London Marathon. Seeing tens of thousands of people come together to take on a personal challenge, beat a personal best, or raise money for charities close to their hearts is unbelievably inspiring.
In previous years, you might have watched it on TV or been out supporting and felt a little calling to be on the other side, in front of the barriers, with people shouting your name... Well, now’s your chance to be part of the team that will support you to the Finish Line and beyond – all while raising vital funds for those living with cancer.
The 2023 Team Macmillan has its highest number of charity places to date and these are already filling up with fantastic runners! So, don’t miss out on a spot with the team that will provide in-person and virtual training sessions with experienced running coaches, monthly updates about training and fundraising communication, amazing Marathon Day support and a free training top. Most importantly, you'll know that you're helping to improve the lives of thousands of people diagnosed with cancer every year.
If you need an extra nudge to apply, then this is what a member of the 2022 Team Macmillan said about his marathon journey.
"The communication up to the day itself was always timely with key information and lots of encouragement, especially for first-time runners – you took the stress out of the process. It was great to meet some of the team at the TCS London Marathon Running Show and again they took those last-minute nerves away. Seeing all the green shirts at the designated points cheering the runners on made the next mile that much easier. Finally, the post-marathon reception took me and my family’s breath away, you made me and I’m sure the rest of the runners feel like we were walking on air – which after 26.2 miles we certainly weren’t! I’m so glad I could play a small part in supporting such an amazing charity."
Right now, there are more than three million people living with cancer and that number keeps growing. Those with cancer deserve to have their cancer needs met by high-quality services and Macmillan wants to make sure they know they can turn to Macmillan from the moment they are diagnosed.
Team Macmillan will do whatever it takes. Join the challenge and apply to run, volunteer to cheer on the day, or donate. To get going, click here – and see you there!
