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.

Registration fee and sponsorship target

Our Gold Bond runners are required to raise a minimum of £2,500 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 £100 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 15th July 2023 at 5pm. 


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 22nd 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.
