Joining Team Young Citizens

Young Citizens helps young people become active, engaged and motivated citizens, who are able to contribute positively to their communities – whether those communities are local, national or global. We believe that by helping young people play a full part in their communities, we can help strengthen democratic society. At a time when so many of our democratic institutions are under threat, our work is more important than ever.

Our work ranges from immersive learning projects where young people learn about the legal justice system to empowering children to take action on social issues they care about most. We also empower teachers and volunteering professionals with specialist training and resources for classroom delivery. All of our work has a single aim: to help young people be active citizens for life.

By joining Team Young Citizens you will be making a real difference by helping us reach even more disaffected and disenfranchised young people through targeted, resources and campaigns. 

We can't do it without you so join the team today and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up, through to when you cross the finish line!

All we just ask you fundraise as much as you can to support our mission.

What do I get as part of Team Young Citizens?

When you join Team Young Citizens, we'll support you every step of the way with:

  • A fundraising pack bursting with fundraising and training top tips 
  • Your free Team Young Citizens running vest or t-shirt
  • Personalised support to keep you up to date with news and activities
  • A cheer squad to support you along the route on the big day.

Most importantly we'll provide you with a reason to put in those months of training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of young people across the UK.

Why choose London Landmarks Half Marathon?

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is a closed-road run through Central London and is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster. From cultural landmarks and heritage to the city's quirky and hidden secrets, runners get to explore the capital on a route like no other!

Starting on Pall Mall, the route takes in fabulous views of London’s most iconic landmarks including Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column, the Gherkin, the Shard, the Tower of London and the London Eye before finishing by Downing Street.
