Great Ormond Street Hospital is the Official Charity of the Year for the 2023 TCS London Marathon and Team GOSH is made up of more than 850 people running for the charity on Sunday (23 April).
Opening the TCS London Marathon Running Show tomorrow (Wednesday) will be Liz Tait, GOSH’s Head of Fundraising, alongside some of the Team GOSH participants. Joining them at the ribbon cutting will also be Rifka Noronha, Head of Corporate Affairs for TCS UK&I and Catherine Anderson, Executive Director of the London Marathon Foundation.
The TCS London Marathon Running Show is where all participants go before Marathon Day to collect their all-important Event Pack, which includes their bib number. It is likely to be a record number of starters in this year’s event with more than 45,000 people registered.
The TCS London Marathon Running Show, which is free to enter, hosts exhibitors, has fun activations for all and gives participants important Marathon Day tips and information and has a packed line-up of speakers including elite runners, celebrity guests and industry experts. You can view the line-up here.
Among the many activations at this year’s TCS London Marathon Running Show is the London Marathon Foundation stand, where the Foundation will be celebrating reaching the funding milestone of £100 million awarded to projects that inspire activity across the UK.
The Foundation was created in 1981 just before the first London Marathon, by Chris Brasher and John Disley, the co-founders of the London Marathon. To celebrate reaching the £100 million funding milestone, the Foundation will have an activation at the Running Show with a 100-seconds of activity challenge, along with information about some of the inspiring projects that have benefited from the Foundation’s funding.
