About the London Marathon

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.

Our places are sold out – but you can still get involved

Mind has a set number of places in the marathon, and unfortunately applications for these have now closed.

You might already have your own place in the marathon, which you got through the event organiser's ballot. If you’d like to use your place to raise money for Mind, you can! We’d love to have you on the team.

Just click on the link below to let us know, so we can send you a fundraising pack and get you involved.

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 give 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.

How we'll support you

Whether you're a seasoned or first-time runner, Mind will be with you every step of the way. We offer all our runners a fantastic support package.

You can expect:

  • Lots of training and fundraising advice
  • Regular e-newsletters
  • Training days to meet experts and the team
  • A vest with iron-on letters
  • Enthusiastic cheering teams along the marathon route
  • A post-race reception with massages and refreshments
  • A dedicated and experienced Fundraising Officer to give support and advice

"As I crossed the finish line, I still managed a smile as not only had I raised nearly £2300 for Mind, but I’d also raised awareness for mental health and the importance of talking to someone who understands."

Jim, #TeamMind London Marathon Runner
