Join Team Marie Curie for the most iconic and exciting running events in the calendar year! 

Just picture it, taking to the streets of London, with thousands of people lining the roads cheering you on, the London Marathon is not to be missed! It’s an experience like no other and we can assure you it’ll be a memory that lasts forever.

Our charity places

If you want to double your chances, you can apply for one of our charity places by filling out our online application form. We ask all of our charity place runners to pay a £50 registration fee and commit to raising a minimum £2000 to help our nurses continue to provide free care for people living with a terminal illness.

Our applications will remain open until the end of July, and after this time we shall be allocating some of our places. To apply for one of these places, all you have to do is fill in our online application form - it really is that simple. Please fill this in with as much detail as possible, as this will help us assess your application. Please note by applying for a place, this does NOT secure your a spot on the team, we will be in touch if you have been successful. 

The London Marathon ballot

The ballot will open on Monday 1 May and you’ll have until 5pm Friday 5 May to enter. You’ll then find out if you are one of the lucky ones to get a place later in the year. Visit the London Marathon website to find out more.

Why you should join Team Marie Curie?

We’ll be there with you every step of the way - from the moment you sign up with us to the second you cross the finish line and beyond. We’ll give you all the help, support and encouragement you need.

  • Friendly and experienced fundraising advice from our dedicated London Marathon Team
  • London Marathon Expo stand where you can meet the team and get excited for the big event
  • Online running / training club to meet your fellow London Marathon runners
