We need your cheers – Anthony Nolan at the TCS London Marathon 2024

The TCS London Marathon is one of the biggest events in the Anthony Nolan calendar – a day when so many of our amazing supporters come together to support people with blood cancer. This event will be even more special as Anthony Nolan celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2024!  

TeamAN runners deserve the best and that’s where YOU come in. You can give our lifesavers that extra motivation they need and know that you’re saving lives too. 

Volunteers will be at one of four official Anthony Nolan cheer points at the heart of the action along the London Marathon route. The Anthony Nolan Events Team will keep in touch with you in the run up to the event to give you team updates and all the information you will need for the day.
