Guaranteed Charity Place

Applications for our charity places in the 2020 London Marathon are now closed. Thank you to everyone who has applied for one of our London Marathon places. Registration for all charity place runners has now closed, meaning our team has been confirmed and we can no longer offer charity places to our waiting list.

Our charity places are very limited so we ask all Sands charity place runners to apply for a place and pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £2000.

The full application process for our 2021 London Marathon places will be announced here by 1 April 2020. Applications will likely open on this year's race day. If you have any questions about running for Sands at the London Marathon please email teamsands@sands.org.uk
