TCS London Marathon

London Marathon 2022

It doesn't get bigger, better or tougher than the TCS London Marathon. It's the world's largest fundraising event and the ultimate sporting challenge. And we'd love you to be part of our team!

By joining #TeamSFH, you will have the full support of our team every step of the way, all the way to the finish line. You'll have expert guidance and support as you prepare for the race, as well as the opportunity to meet up with our other runners at our regular runners' evenings.

Our fundraising team will help you maximise your fundraising so you can reach and exceed your target, and on the day, we'll be cheering you on and giving you the motivation you need to reach that finish line. 

The closing date for applications has now passed. We will be in touch on or before Monday 17th July to confirm whether your application has been successful. 

Already have a place?

If you have your own place at the London Marathon 2024, you can still join #TeamSFH and set your own fundraising target! Get in touch to access oodles of support for your training and fundraising.

Run the London Marathon like Alfie, and help people like his Dad, Alf.

Alfie was just 15 years old when his Dad, Alf, died in our care. Alf was so comfortable at the Hospice, he didn't want to leave, so Alfie and his Mum would visit regularly. The nurses even organised a party for the family after Alfie's parents got married a week before his Dad's death. The support the family received inspired a lifetime of support from Alfie, who raised over £23,000 at the London Marathon in 2023.

Our runners were out in force, taking on the most iconic fundraising challenge of them all! 

Collectively, they raised £85,000 for the patients in our care.

Registration fee and sponsorship target

Our Gold Bond runners are required to raise a minimum of £2,024 sponsorship. This is something we will support you with along the way, providing you with inspirational ideas and plenty of help with your fundraising so you don't only hit, but smash, your target.

If you are successful with your application, there is a registration fee of £75 which is due before we can confirm your place. This is a non-refundable registration fee and does not form part of your sponsorship.

When will I find out if my application has been successful?

The closing date for Gold Bond places is Monday 10th July 2023 at 9am. 

Once all the applications are in, we will take time to consider them and will be in touch to confirm whether applicants have been successful on or before Monday 17th July.

I have my own place. Can I join #TeamSFH?

Congratulations on securing your place! 

Own place runners receive all the same benefits as those with the charity places, and will become an honoured member of #TeamSFH, but you can set your own fundraising target. We are always grateful for your support and for any funds you can raise for Saint Francis Hospice.
