Event Details

Our charity places for the 2020 event are full, but you can register your interest in one of our places for the 2021 event. As soon as our 2021 places become available we will email you to let you know.

We have a very limited number of London Marathon places which are always oversubscribed; therefore we have an application process in order to allocate the places. We only have 50 places available each year, and usually have around 500 people interested in these places.

Sadly we cannot provide a place to everyone, but our priority is always to ensure we raise as much as possible from our events to help people affected by MND. We rely on this event as our biggest annual fundraiser, raising over £300,000 each year. This allows us to plan our work for the future.

Successful applicants will need to pay a £75 registration fee within two weeks of being offered a place and commit to raising a minimum of £2,500 in sponsorship.

If you are unsuccessful we would like to reassure you of the importance of your support. With plenty of great alternative events on offer there may be another challenge you could tick off your bucket list, such as the ever popular Brighton Marathon.

If you still want to run a marathon for #TeamMND, we do have places in the Brighton Marathon, and you can sign up here
