Heads Together Runner Stories

Heads Together is the Charity of the Year for the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon. We want to make it an opportunity to get the country talking about mental health and our runners are leading the way. These are their stories.

Each person has a different reason for running the marathon & here you can discover what inspired the Heads Together runners to run for mental health.

Meet Team Heads Together


Heads Together unfortunately does not have charity places in the 2018 London Marathon. However if you would like to run to support mental health, we would encourage you consider running for Mind or other mental health charities who do have places. Mind’s applications will open in June 2018.

If you are fortunate enough to get a ballot place for the 2018 London Marathon and would like to support Heads Together and mental health, please get in touch with us in October for more information on how you can get involved. You can enter the London Marathon ballot until 5th May.


Help us build on the great work being done across the country so that prejudice and fear no longer stand in the way of people getting the help they need. Let’s get our Heads Together to eliminate stigma and change the conversation on mental health.


Through our work with young people, emergency response, homeless charities, and with veterans, we have seen time and time again that unresolved mental health problems lie at the heart of some of our greatest social challenges.

Too often, people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health. This fear of prejudice and judgement stops people from getting help and can destroy families and end lives. Heads Together wants to help people feel much more comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing and have the practical tools to support their friends and family.

The Heads Together campaign will build on the great work being done by our partner charities so that prejudice and fear no longer stand in the way of people getting the help they need.

Being the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year is the perfect springboard for the Heads Together campaign. We cannot wait to see hundreds of runners hitting the streets of London this April to end the stigma and change the conversation on mental health once and for all.
