By Community | May 1, 2019
With the 2019 edition of the Virgin Money London Marathon last Sunday, the event surpassed the £1 billion mark in money raised for charitable causes from fundraising since it began almost four decades ago.
A record 42,906 started this year’s race (7,000 took part in the inaugural event in 1981).
Beyond fundraising, London Marathon Events is committed to becoming a world leader in delivering sustainable mass participation events.
A range of innovative initiatives were launched at the 2019 edition of the mass event aiming to dramatically reduce its environmental impact and set the standard for mass participation events.
