Apply for a charity place

We only have very few charity places in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2021 and these are allocated through an application process.

Apply for a charity place here.

All charity applications will be reviewed and successful applicants will be notified before January 2021. Please note that should your application be successful you will be required to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £100, sign our fundraising agreement and pledge to raise a minimum of £2,000 for Haven House Children’s Hospice.

All our Haven House runners receive:

  • A Welcome Pack with full fundraising support
  • A dedicated contact at Haven house sending you team emails and one-to-one support
  • A Pre-Marathon Training Event with running, injury and nutrition specialists
  • A personalised Haven House running vest
  • An amazing Haven House cheer squad en route with an a choir!

Apply for your own ballot place

We also encourage all interested runners to maximise their chances of running in 2021 by applying in the Virgin Money London Marathon 2021 public ballot. The ballot will be open from Sunday 4th  - Friday 9th October 2020 with all successful applicants notified in January 2021.

If you secure your own place in the ballot, we would love for you to support us and join our team of #HavenHouseHeroes. With your own place there is no minimum fundraising target, just raise as much as you can!
