About the event

Run for Mind in the iconic London Marathon. This annual event is a 26.2 mile run around the streets of London. And we'll be there to support you every step of the way.

Whether this will be your first marathon, or you're a seasoned pro, we'd love for you to join the team.

If you've got your own place already

You might have your own place in the London Marathon already, through the public ballot, a running club, or a deferred entry. If so, we'd love for you to join #TeamMind.

As an own place runner, you'll get the same support from our dedicated events team as those with a charity place. And you can set your own fundraising target! 

By clicking on 'Join the Mind team', you're telling us that you already have a place in the 2024 London Marathon. Mind will not consider you for a charity place.

Any questions?

The registration fee for the TCS London Marathon is £100 and we ask all our charity place fundraisers to raise a minimum of £2,000.

We ask everyone interested in a Mind charity place for the TCS London Marathon 2024 to fill out an application form.

Please include as much information as possible in the questions provided. We are constantly reviewing applications and offering  places, so please do apply as soon as possible.

If successful, we will ask for a registration fee of £100 and you will have a fundraising target of £2,000.

Congratulations on securing a place in the ballot – we would love to have you on the team! Please select 'I have a place' above.

Please only fill out this form if you have a ballot place with London Marathon Events.

As an own place runner, you won’t have a fundraising target. We just ask that you raise as much as you can to help anyone affected by mental health problems.

We will review each application anonymously before making a decision. To improve your chances, please give us much information as possible as to why you want to support Mind and how you plan on raising £2,000.

You will have a 50% (£1,000) fundraising deadline of 21 February (2 months before the event). We then ask that the full £2,000 is with us by 21 May (1 month after the event).

We set the minimum fundraising target at £2,000 to make sure we’re able to cover the costs that we’ve paid for the place as well as put enough back into our vital services to support people living with a mental health problem. 

You don't need to raise the full amount until 1 month after event day. We know a lot of donations come in on the week of and after the event. So there is still plenty of time to plan your fundraising and collect donations.

We will be in touch throughout your journey to provide fundraising tips and ideas.

Please make sure you're confident you can raise the £2,000 before you apply.  

Once your registration is confirmed, we will send you a running vest and welcome pack in the post. This can take between 10-15 working days.

You will need to collect your race pack from the Running Show, which usually runs from the Wednesday to Saturday before the event. Make sure you allow time to collect the pack during your race day planning.

We will have cheer points along the route and a post-race reception, minutes from the finish line.

Still got questions? You can:

"Running has helped me through some of the toughest moments in my life, and has given me the most incredible experiences I could ever have dreamed of, so whatever you’re thinking of doing – do it!"
