2022: join team Outward Bound

If you would like to register your interest in running the London Marathon in April 2022 to raise money for The Outward Bound Trust, please follow this link.

Why run for us?

The Outward Bound Trust is a charity with a difference. Our mission is to help young people to defy their limitations through learning and adventure in the wild.

Over 25,000 young people come on an Outward Bound programme every year. We use the mountains, lakes and rivers on our doorsteps to develop skills such as confidence, self-motivation and resilience. Skills that young people need to succeed in education, work and throughout their life.

You can help us

With 1 in 10 young people aged 16-25 in the UK not in education, employment or training our work has never been more important.

Join #TeamOB and run the Virgin Money London Marathon for Outward Bound. You can help us to change young people's lives for the better.

Register your interest for 2022. Or if you have any questions please email Izzy.

Register your interest for 2022

Fill in this short form if you're interested in running the Virgin Money London Marathon in 2022 to raise money for Outward Bound. We'll then be in touch with more information later in the year. Please note: completing this form and registering your interest does not guarantee you a place.

Supporting you every step of the way

Excuse the pun, but taking part in any running event is a marathon and not a sprint! And we know that lots of people can find the fundraising as challenging as the running. Our aim at Outward Bound, is to make your life as easy as possible by guiding you through the 'ins and outs' of training and fundraising.

Good luck!
