Cheering on our marathon runners!

4 incredibly people are running the Lonodon Marathon on Sunday to raise money for JRS UK – Danny, Stephen, Andrew and Aidan.

You can join any of the three JRS UK cheer points to help cheer them on as they take on this incredible challenge!


Cheer point one: 11.5 miles in, Most Holy Trinity Church, Bermondsey

A cheer point that we’ve had for many years, on the road just outside the Church on Jamaica Road. We’ll have a team there from around 9:30 am, holding our spot It’s a great place to see the elite runners from as they make there way through the early points of the race! It’s about a 10-minute walk from Bermondsey Station on the Jubilee Line.


There’s still time to sponsor our runners: check out Danny’s JustGiving Page to learn more about why he’s running, and to sponsor him.


Cheer point two: 16 miles in, Westferry Road, Mudchute

A new place for JRS to cheer from! Just over halfway through, the runners often get a bit tired and are in need of a pick me up from their supporters! About 5 minutes walk form Mudchute DLR station, we’ll have a group there from about 10:30 am.


There’s still time to sponsor our runners: check out Andrew & Stephen’s JustGiving Page to learn more about why they’re running, and to sponsor them.


Cheer point three: 21 miles in, Commercial Road, Limehouse

It’s the home-stretch and just before the crowds begin to swell as the runners get their second glimpse of Tower Bridge, and they can begin to taste the finish lane – so close, but still 5.3 miles to go! We’ll have a team cheering our runners on from about 11:30 am and the nearest station is Limehouse DLR. It’s only about a three-minute walk from there.


There’s still time to sponsor our runners: check out Aidan’s JustGiving Page to learn more about why he’s running, and to sponsor him.


Some top-tips for supporting and being a spectator at the marathon:

  • It can be a long day and obviously outside – wear comfortable shoes and come prepared for rain and shine!
  • Central London is very busy on marathon day, and there are often changes to transport schedules. Leave yourself plenty of extra time to get around.
  • Bring water and snacks with you – keep hydrated and well fed!
  • It’s nice to bring along some jelly babies (or other sugar-y sweet) to offer to the runners, who are often very appreciative!

We hope to see you on Sunday 28th April!
