London Marathon

Local runners who are looking for a place in next year’s Virgin Money London Marathon are being encouraged to sign-up for a place with one of the region’s oldest youth charities.


The charity has limited places available in the 2019 event and is encouraging local runners to get in touch to book their place and pledge their support to the youth charity in the process.

YMCA Humber has been operating in the Humber Region since 1882. Its services span across North East Lincolnshire and every year over 300 young people pass through the doors of its services and projects.

Money raised by marathon runners will be spent on ensuring those services continue to run for young people in the months and years to come.

What we need from you & the support you will receive

There is a £100 non-refundable registration fee for the race, which is paid up-front but does form part of your final sponsorship total £2,000 sponsorship target (subtracting £100 for registration, this leaves £1,900 minimum to be split between YMCA Humber and YMCA England for fundraising; £1,600 to be raised before raceday, please contact the team for support with this)

You receive:

  • A YMCA branded training vest
  • Fundraising pack
  • Further fundraising materials
  • A dedicated YMCA JustGiving page for online fundraising
  • Telephony and email support, as well as face-to-face support from your local YMCA
  • Post-race reception in London
  • Opportunities to visit your local YMCA and meet staff and young people
