The London Marathon is an iconic marathon event taking place every year for the past 41 years. 40,000 runners in total take on the challenge. In 2022, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) is proud to be London Marathon’s Charity of the Year. As a result, we anticipate over 1,500 runners taking part for the BHF and we need your support to cheer them on at our 10 cheer zones along the London Marathon route as well as providing pre and post event support. As a Charity of the Year volunteer, there will be a whole host of incredible opportunities available to you. Join the thousands cheering on runners at the Cutty Sark, check in at the famous Tower Bridge crossing or join us on the prestigious streets of Westminster. To ensure you have the ultimate London Marathon experience, you will also have the chance to volunteer at two iconic locations en route. Your support will show runners how much we appreciate their efforts and motivate them to the finish line. 

What skills do I need?

We are looking for volunteers who would like to cheer on our runners on route.
