Why run for Beat? 

Every year we help thousands of people across the country who are affected by eating disorders. This simply wouldn’t be possible without fundraisers like you choosing to take on the London Marathon – thank you! 

We’ll be there to support you every step of the way including:   

  • A Beat support pack with fundraising ideas and materials
  • A free Beat running top to wear on race day
  • A Facebook group where you can chat to other runners
  • Lots of materials, literature & information to help you right up to the big day
  • And amazing support from our Fundraising Team to help you reach your fundraising target

We'll also be there on the day to cheer you on with the crowds and to meet you at the finish line for some well-deserved refreshments and celebration.

How your fundraising will make a difference

Your fundraising will support our Helpline services so we can continue to be there for those who need us 365 days a year, giving sufferers hope for recovery. 

Looking after your health and wellbeing

Any marathon is an extremely demanding physical challenge. We strongly suggest that you consult your doctor or clinician before taking part in this event, especially if you have a current or previous medical condition including any experience of an eating disorder. Please also ensure you read and agree to our Fundraising Guidelines
