What our fundraisers say...
I feel very privileged and blessed to have been given the opportunity to enter the most iconic marathon in the world, represent and at the same time raise crucial funds that the charity needs.
From the outset of the race, I cannot explain how amazing the atmosphere is, The fellow runners, the marshals, and the crowds on route. Seeing little faces stood by the side of the road cheering and supporting was very humbling and something that I will cherish forever. I can now with pride say I am a marathon runner!
Tracey Hudson, 2022 Marathon Runner
The whole experience was great! It was a memory for life really, a really fantastic thing to reflect on, it was just amazing, the whole thing was amazing. The whole experience right from the beginning to the end with Help & Care has just been so nice for me, It’s been a lovely experience and I’m really glad I did it
Claire, 2020 Marathon Runner
I decided I wanted to run because I wanted a challenge; I wanted a mental challenge and I wanted a physical challenge.I think for me, I'm interested in the discipline of training, to know I've done it. Dream. Believe. Achieve.

Run for Roots
Whether you are a weekly Park Run athlete, a Couch-to-5K-graduate, or contemplating your first pair of trainers, the London Marathon is open to all. It can be a hugely rewarding experience, and with Help & Care, you'll join a small community of runners to help on your journey.
By joining our group of fundraisers you will have access to:
- Peer support through a friendly WhatsApp group (optional)
- Advice from our own expert, Esther, who is a keen runner and gives fundraisers lots of great tips
- A pre-run catchup in Bournemouth to meet your fellow runners
Of course, this support is not essential, but our fundraisers often find real value in the community, especially as most tend to be from the Dorset area.
If you would like to join our London Marathon team, please send an email to our Fundraising Lead, Charlie Monkcom at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't wait to meet you, and thank you for your interest in joining #RunForRoots.
