This is not a charity place application.

There is no minimum pledge, we just ask that you raise what you can.

The virtual event is back for 2021! Running alongside the physical event, you will have the opportunity to run the 26.2 miles from wherever you are in the world.

You will receive your race number in the post as well as your finishers t-shirt and coveted medal on completion.

Charity places will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis.

If you have applied for a charity place with us for the physical event, you are still able to register for the virtual. If you are successful in your application, we can simply move you across to the physical event.
