We're so proud of our London Marathon runners

We're so proud of our London Marathon runners

We'd like to say a huge thank you to all our amazing marathon runners.

The runners' incredible achievement has helped to make this year's London Marathon truly a 'mental health marathon', raising awareness and changing the conversation on mental health.

The marathon was the culmination of months of training by the runners and a year of campaigning by Heads Together, a group of 8 charities led by the Royal Foundation, to change the conversation on mental health.

Thousands of runners showed their support for the campaign by wearing the blue Heads Together headbands.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who lead the Heads Together campaign, met some of its 700 runners, before officially starting the mass race. Starting the race and cheering on runners as well as handing out water to thirsty runners at Mile 22 and placing medals over their heads after the finish line. 

Following the London Marathon Heads Together and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will continue the momentum that has built up to help change the national conversation on mental health. The campaign will also back new initiatives to help people talk about mental health and find the support they need.
