see below for details.


The celebrated Virgin Money London Marathon is the world’s biggest fundraising event. With an infamous route passing the most iconic of landmarks, it's the experience of a lifetime and we are here to support you every step of the way.

Guaranteed charity places

Our charity places are very limited so we ask that you apply for a place and if successful, pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £2,200, plus a £100 registration fee.

The application process for our 2021 and 2022 London Marathon places will be announced here on our website and on social media.

Applications for any available places will open later this year. If you wish to be informed when they do, please email teamsands@sands.org.uk to express your interest.

Ballot places

Make sure to enter the ballot for your own place in 2021, which can be found on the London Marathon website from 4th October. You can still run for #TeamSands and will be a full member of our superstar team.

You set your own fundraising target and receive all the same love, support and benefits as our charity places runners.

If you had a 2020 ballot place and have recently decided you would like to run for #TeamSands in 2021, 2022 or 2023 then it’s not too late. You can join #TeamSands using your own ballot place here:
