LONDON: The 2024 TCS London Marathon will set a world record for the biggest annual one-day fundraising event, with more than £67m raised from this year’s event already.

Enthuse, the official online fundraising partner of the London Marathon, has announced £27m has been raised so far on its platform, while £40 million has been donated via JustGiving.

This means the 2024 event has already beaten the existing world record of £66.4 million, which was set at the 2019 London Marathon.

Chester Mojay-Sinclare, founder and chief executive of Enthuse, the official online fundraising partner of London Marathon Events, said: “What an incredible event and a brilliant day with such a huge amount raised for good causes. This is the third year we have been the official partner for the TCS London Marathon and it’s incredible to see the growth over that time – our fundraising total of £27 million for the event, so far, is more than 200 per cent higher than in our first year.

“It’s such a special day for the sector and we’re delighted for all the charities that will benefit from the public’s generosity. We’re already looking forward to the 2025 event.” 

Hugh Brasher, Event Director for the TCS London Marathon, said: “The 2024 TCS London Marathon broke many records over the weekend and this fantastic news from Enthuse and JustGiving means that we have already broken our own world record of £66.4 million from 2019 as the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event. That is a wonderful achievement and huge thanks to every single person involved. 

 “The total will continue to grow as many donations come in after the event weekend, so we will announce the final total in the coming months.”

A record number of more than 53,000 people completed yesterday’s TCS London Marathon.

The ballot for the 2025 TCS London Marathon, taking place on Sunday 27 April, is now open and will close on Friday. For more information and to enter, click here.
