Why you should run virtually for SolarAid

The past two years have been difficult for people and the planet. With those who are contributing the least to climate change being affected the most, we know that we can’t solve the problem of energy poverty alone. By taking part in the Virtual London Marathon, you can help us light up every home, school and clinic by 2030.

By running for us you will:

  • Receive a SolarAid t-shirt
  • Get full support from our team from start to finish
  • Fundraising tips to help you smash your target of £150
  • Help to End The Darkness for millions of people
  • Official finishers t-shirt and medal from the London Marathon
