What is The London Marathon Charitable Trust?
RideLondon is organised by London Marathon Events (LME) Limited. We are proud of the fact that all the surplus generated by LME from RideLondon, the TCS London Marathon and other events organised by LME, is passed to our parent company, The London Marathon Charitable Trust, a registered charity.
The London Marathon Charitable Trust’s mission is to Inspire Activity by providing funding to initiatives that enable people to become and remain physically active regardless of age, gender and background, creating healthier and happier communities.
Since its founding in 1981, The Trust has given in excess of £95 million to more than 1,500 projects that Inspire Activity in London and across the UK.
RideLondon was held in London and Surrey between 2013 and 2019, with more than £4.3 million awarded to projects in Surrey that Inspire Activity.
As RideLondon is now partnering with Essex County Council, communities in Essex will soon be able to benefit from The London Marathon Charitable Trust funding.
