We know that life can sometimes be incredibly tough. Thanks to the dedication of more than 20,000 volunteers, Samaritans can be there for anyone, whatever they are going through and whenever they are struggling to cope. We’re also at the heart of local communities, working with schools, workplaces, railways, prisons and hospitals to offer training and support, preventing suicide and helping people turn their lives around.

Our life-saving work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our event participants.

This world-famous run takes you through the capital’s closed roads around the River Thames. As you weave from east to west, you’ll discover London’s stunning landmarks and sights, such as Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, the London Eye and Big Ben, with an epic finish line on The Mall.

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful and ongoing support from the minute I applied for a place running the London Marathon for the Samaritans, to the end of the day itself. Throughout all of this, your support and encouragement was amazing.
