We have just one place remaining on our team for this year's TCS London Marathon, which is due to take place on Sunday 2nd October 2022.

The world-famous London Marathon route has remained largely unchanged since the inaugural race in 1981 and encompasses many of the capital’s most mesmerising landmarks, old and new. Take a look at the route here:

Why choose ISWAN?

Your support will help us be there for seafarers and their families in need all over the world. Seafarers lead tough and dangerous lives, and spend long periods away from their families with sometimes severely restricted shore leave.

Our 24-hour international helplines, SeafarerHelp and Yacht Crew Help, are available every day of the year and are free to call from anywhere in the world, and we have staff working in India and the Philippines to provide humanitarian support to seafarers and their families in need in these regions.

Last year, we assisted nearly 12,000 seafarers and their families with issues including COVID-19 crises, abandonment, unpaid wages and piracy, and our teams provided emotional support to those who needed someone to talk to. You can read about some of the seafarers we have helped here.
