Event Info


The Virgin Money London Marathon receives incredible volunteer support and we have approximately 6,000 volunteers who join the team and play a crucial role in the delivery of the event.

Volunteer Physiotherapists at the Virgin Money London Marathon

Among the many volunteers each year at the London Marathon are a sizeable group of physiotherapists who provide support to the runners both on the course and at the finish, working alongside other medical volunteers. This is a vital role which helps many runners to finish the event.

Working in teams with diverse experience and skills, you will need to be adaptable and a team player and in return will experience being part of a truly great event. All levels of physiotherapy experience are welcome as long as you have a passion to get involved.

Please follow the link below to submit your details for the chance to be part of the team.

Please note: Unfortunately due to high levels of interest, we cannot guarantee volunteer places for physiotherapists.
