The 2023 TCS London Marathon will take place on Sunday, April 23 2023, returning to its traditional spring slot for the first time since 2019.
Every year charities buy places in the London Marathon then give them to runners who agree to raise a minimum amount of money – Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund has secured 10 places in next year’s marathon on 23 April 2023.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so please make sure you let us know as soon as possible to be sure of getting your runner’s number.
Marathon success in 2022
Thank you and well done to all those who ran on our behalf last year. Runners on behalf of the charity raised a total of £10k for the Trust in 2022.
Since the first London Marathon in 1981, runners in the race have raised more than £700 million for charity, making it the largest annual one-day fundraising event in the world.
Running the London Marathon and fundraising for charity has never been more popular.
If you’d like to run in support of our charity, the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Charitable Fund gets all of the money you raise and won’t have to spend anything on your place. We ask all runners to commit to a fundraising target of £1,500 to secure your place. However much you raise, your contribution will make a massive difference to our fund and the local community we serve.
Raising money for the Trust can give purpose to running the London Marathon and serve as a goal to work towards. If you’re running just for the sake of it, you may start to doubt yourself and feel tempted to give up when the going gets tough. You’ll be more inclined to get up and go training in the cold, wet winter months when you know you’re supporting a good cause.
As well as raising money for the Trust, you can help raise awareness too. Everyone who sponsors you will learn more about the Trust’s charitable fund and the work we do.
