London Marathon FAQs

We've answered some of your top questions about the London Marathon below. For any other questions get in touch on fundraising@ovarian.org.uk or 020 7380 1730. Our friendly team are happy to help.

The London Marathon is a welcoming atmosphere for both experienced runners and those who are new to marathon distances. You will need to train to reach the full distance. However, we can provide you with training plans from the experts at London Marathon to help you reach the 26.2 miles. Many people who take part are new to running and running events, so you will not be alone.

All of our runners will receive:

  • Access to training plans for all levels from the running experts at the London Marathon.
  • A free Ovarian Cancer Action tech running vest – so you can show your support to everyone whilst you train and on the day.
  • Bespoke fundraising support from our dedicated team – materials, ideas and advice to help you to smash your fundraising target.
  • The experience of a lifetime being cheered along by the crowds lining the streets of London!
  • Improved fitness levels and the knowledge you have helped us to get closer to making ovarian cancer a survivable disease.

Your funds will help us to make faster progress towards making ovarian cancer a survivable disease. Every day, 12 women die of ovarian cancer. Your support will mean we are able to fund research that focuses on the prevention and treatment of ovarian cancer, transforming how long and how well women will live. Your fundraising will also help us to raise awareness of the symptoms of ovarian cancer so people know what to look out for, which saves lives.

Our friendly fundraising team are here to support you with your fundraising every step of the way. We can provide advice, materials and ideas to help you smash your fundraising target. We allow our runners until 3 months after the event to reach the minimum fundraising target, so there is plenty of time to collect sponsorship and raise as much as possible to support our vital work.

The event is a fantastic excuse to go away for the weekend. There are lots of thing to see in London, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye or one of the huge selection of museums and galleries, there's something for everyone! The run itself is a unique and fantastic way to do some sightseeing around the capital.
