London 26.2 miles 22 April 2018

In the world of running, it doesn't get any more iconic than the Virgin Money London Marathon. Especially when you’re in it. Thousands of people will be lining the route and watching their TV screens to cheer on our runners. Which is why who you run for is so important, it’s a chance to show the world what you stand for. It’s the chance to beat prostate cancer. 

Apart from being a hugely enjoyable day out, the marathon is more than that for our Men United runners. It’s about making a real difference to the lives of thousands of men facing prostate cancer.
