We aim to be in touch within one month to let you know if your application is successful.

Charity places for the 2020 virtual London Marathon

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 London Marathon will now take place virtually on Sunday 4 October. For the moment, these places are only available through charity places. We are taking applications for our charity places which may become available before October. Email us on [email protected] for more information.

The 2.6 Challenge

In addition to the postponed event, we’re inviting our supporters to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April. The organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country came together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge launched on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event. We want supporters to take part in an activity of their choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support the National Deaf Children’s Society.
