Be a part of the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 24th April!

Here's how you can join us. If you’d like to get involved or want more information, get in touch with Madeleine Martin at e: or t: 0845 652 0448.

Run for Sands!

If you were lucky enough to receive a place in the ballot please use it to run with Team Sands and raise what you can! Let our Fundraising & Events Team know you are running as part of our team and we will make sure we support you every step of the way.

Join our Kerb Crew!

Help us cheer on our amazing team of over 50 runners! We want to make this year really special for our London Marathon runners, so we’d welcome any extra support to help us make as much noise as possible and cheer our runners on at Birdcage Walk (very close to Green Park/Westminster tube station). We will provide a free Sands t-shirt for all supporters – so get in touch and we’ll see you there!

Lend your helping hands!

The London Marathon is a gruelling challenge, so we’re looking for physiotherapy volunteers to lend us their fantastic skills on the day. If you are able to come along and offer post-race massages to our team of runners we would love to hear from you. Along with a free Sands t-shirt, you will be a part of the world’s biggest marathon event and this experience would look great on any CV! More importantly you’ll know that your efforts provided the perfect end to our amazing fundraisers' London Marathon experience!

Capture our runners on camera!

Sands have a team of over 50 runners taking part in the Virgin Money London Marathon and we are looking for volunteer photographers who will help us get some great actions shots of our runners as they approach the finish line on Birdcage Walk. If you are able to join us with your camera to capture and celebrate our incredible runners we would love to hear from you! Along with a free Sands t-shirts and the possibility of your images being used in future promotional materials you will be a part of the biggest marathon event in the world!

Last year our London Marathon runners raised over £50,000 an INCREDIBLE total given that we only have a handful of golden bond places and are always so heavily over-subscribed. For those of you that have never experienced the London Marathon in its full glory we can’t stress enough what an amazing experience this is, it is the biggest fundraising event of the year and the largest marathon in the world!! – our fundraisers would be over the moon to see you there!

By providing extra support and raising more awareness than we could on our own, volunteers are vital in helping Sands achieve everything we do. To get in touch please contact Madeleine Martin at e: or t: 0845 652 0448!
