The London Marathon is one of the top five international marathons and with over 38,000 runners taking part each year, it really is an extraordinary event to be part of. The 26.2 mile course takes you on an incredible journey through Central London passing the capital's famous landmarks such as Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and more.  

The 2016 London Marathon saw a staggering record total of 247,069 people entering the ballot!  If you would like the opportunity to run in the London Marathon and raise some much needed funds for Dyslexia Action at the same time, then please apply - all applications are welcomed!

Lisa Hardy raised over £2,000 for Dyslexia Action in the 2016 London Marathon and this is what she had to say,

For Dyslexia Action it is 100% worth it!’
