One of London Marathon Events’ founding aims is to maximise revenue for charities, and we’re very proud that our events have raised more than £1 billion for charities since 1981. From the onset of the pandemic, London Marathon Events has worked hard to provide charities with new opportunities to raise crucial funding and lead the way for the safe return of mass participation sports events.
We have always aimed to be fair, transparent and to act with integrity in all our engagements with our much-valued charity partners.
We know there have been frustrating times during this very challenging period. We value the honest feedback we have received and are committed to finding ways to collaborate more closely with our charity partners and develop shared understanding. We want to hold constructive conversations throughout the year so we can offer optimal opportunities and support to charities as they continue to build back.
As a first step, we are convening the first London Marathon Events Charity Working Group in the summer of 2022.
