Battersea cheer squad at the London Marathon

The London Marathon is a truly amazing event and offers everything you could want from a race – a high quality course, enthusiastic charity runners and an inspiring and interesting route.

How to get involved

We have a limited number of charity places available, so please do fill out our application form and tell us why you want to run on behalf of Battersea. By taking part in the London Marathon you'll be helping lost, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats find the loving, new homes they need.

Apply for a charity place

The non-refundable registration fee for a Battersea charity place is £100 and we ask that you pledge to raise a minimum of £2,000.

I have my own place

If you have already secured your place for the London Marathon, we would love for you to run on behalf of Battersea.

Why run for Battersea?

As a Battersea runner you will receive:

  • A Team Battersea running vest
  • Fundraising materials (if required) including collection box, balloons, banners.
  • A fundraising guide with plenty of ideas to help you hit your target, and support from start to finish from our friendly fundraising team.
  • Training guides with our top tips and advice.
  • Access to our Team Battersea Facebook group where you can meet other Battersea supporters taking on challenges and ask questions about training and fundraising.
