We are Team Samaritans and we believe in tomorrow

We were so honoured to be the 2024 TCS London Marathon Charity of the Year

Nearly 500 runners took part in the TCS London Marathon for #TeamSamaritans. Every step you ran and pound you raised will help us recruit more volunteers so we can reach new communities, support more people in more ways and save more lives.

Thank you to all our runners, volunteers, partners and supporters for making this such an incredible event. Together, we showed the world that we believe in tomorrow.

"I feel like dad is cheering me on"

The London Marathon is the best day of the year in London. I've completed marathons in Singapore, New York, Amsterdam, Dublin but London is always my favourite. It's my home town and the atmosphere is electric. My fundraising ensures that there is always someone on the end of a phone to help someone in need and get them through the bad times.
