St Raphael’s Hospice have annual charity places in the Virgin Money London Marathon. Unfortunately, our 2019 charity places are now full. However, if you would like to run in the 2020 event, please contact luciaheard@straphaels.org.uk to register your interest.

Our fantastic 2018 London Marathon team have raised an incredible £19,493!

One of this year's runners, Michelle (pictured), who was taking part in the event for the 2nd time for the Hospice, told us: “The London Marathon was really tough this year with the heat and water shortage but every time I thought about quitting I thought of my Dad and St Raphael's and the importance of me getting to the end. I met up with Peppa Pig at mile 25 and we finished together and high fived at the end! It didn't feel possible I would finish let alone with a Legend like Peppa! It was a great day."
