Join Forward at the world’s most recognised running event with an iconic route in London and help break the cycle of crime and addiction for thousands of marginalised men and women and their families.

Why run the Virgin London Marathon in support of The Forward Trust?

Around 2 million people (1 in 30 adults) in the UK are struggling with addiction to drugs or alcohol. Amongst marginalised groups, such as homeless people, the proportion can be as high as 1 in 3 and amongst prisoners, it is higher than 1 in 2 – more than 50% of all prisoners have some history of drug or alcohol problems.

With your support, we can continue delivering services, in prisons and the community, that bring about lasting change to people’s lives away from addiction / and or crime.

Join Team #BreakTheCycle and you will get:

  • A Forward Trust running vest with your name on it
  • Dedicated support and advice from the Forward team on any questions you have from race information to online fundraising
  • Regular e-newsletters with support, updates and fantastic fundraising tips
  • The best cheering team to support you get to the finish line
  • A celebratory welcome for champions
