London Marathon 2018

PDSA treats one pet every 5 seconds - during a marathon that’s over 3,000 pets. To celebrate our 100 years we want you on our largest ever team of animal lovers.

If you've got a ballot place

If you’ve been lucky enough to get your own place through the ballot, run for PDSA and be part of something special. There are lots of fantastic reasons people choose to run for PDSA – to show your love for pets, to remember a pet you’ve loved and lost, or to help those pets that have nowhere else to turn. Whatever one is close to your heart, you’ll be running for a charity that has provided a staggering 100 million treatments to more than 20 million pets across the UK since 1917.

Run with amazing support every step of the way…

  • No minimum fundraising target - anything you can raise will help save pets’ lives.
  • A Team PDSA professional running vest.
  • Loud ‘n’ proud race day cheer squad.
  • Dedicated support and materials to get you up and running.
