Join us for the world's greatest marathon: Sunday 24 April 2016

The first half of the Virgin Money London Marathon route (26.2 miles) runs just south of the Thames through Blackheath and Greenwich. After crossing the river on Tower Bridge, runners pass some of the capital's famous landmarks, including the London Eye and the Tower of London, before finishing at The Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

BCI's Marathon Man

Tyson SharpOur very own Tyson Sharp ran the gruelling course for us this year! He put in hours of training and huge amounts of grit & determination.... all for BCI!

He has managed to raise a whopping £2,000 for the Bridge to the Future fund, to support young researchers in their projects.

Thank you to all who expressed an interest in signing up for a BCI charity place at the London Marathon. 

Hopefully we will see you again in 2017!
