Inspiring and delivering innovation in mass participation event sustainability
As organisers of the Standard Chartered Great City Race, London Marathon Events is proud to lead the way in showing the power of mass participation sport as a force for good, and of the hugely positive effects our events have had on millions of people since the first London Marathon in 1981.
Our events have a proven track record of inspiring activity, improving physical and mental health and bringing communities together – raising billions of pounds for charities and supporting local businesses in the process.
Driving positive change
We want to ensure our events and activities drive positive change in sustainability too, therefore environmental sustainability is one of six company objectives that guide everything we do – and since 2019 we have focused on measuring and continuously reviewing our impacts to inform our decisions.
