Two Target Ovarian Cancer athletic fundraisers hi five each other - Rob and Darren - Run for Mum

London Marathon Walk

Join Team Target to take on the 26- or 13-mile route through London. The walk will take you from Bloomsbury through the historic heart of the city, towards peaceful parks and alongside Regent's Canal, passing iconic landmarks as you walk along the river and back to the West End.

There are two options to join Team Target

Minimum sponsorship option

Full marathon: £29 registration fee | £120 minimum sponsorship (to be raised 10 weeks before the event)
Half marathon: £29 registration fee | £100 minimum sponsorship (to be raised 10 weeks before the event)

Self-funding option

Although there is no minimum sponsorship for the self-funding option, we’d love for you to raise as much as you can.
