The London Marathon is the world’s largest, and we’d love to have you take on this world-famous 26.2 mile route!

You’ll join 50,000 runners starting from Greenwich, taking in some of London’s most famous landmarks before finishing on the Mall in front of Buckingham Palace.

By running with #TeamStroke, not only will you be supported every step of the way, but you’ll also be part of the team that enables more stroke survivors to rebuild their lives after stroke.

Charity Place

Unfortunately, we have closed our application process for a charity place in the TCS London Marathon. We know this might be disappointing to hear, but we will be opening our 2023 application process very soon.

Own Place

If you have already secured your own place in the London Marathon ballot and would like to run for #TeamStroke, please choose the ‘Own Place’ registration option. There’s no registration fee or minimum fundraising pledge, with everything you raise helping to fund our vital work. You will receive exactly the same support as those with a charity place. We do however have a £300 minimum sponsorship requirement to attend our post-race party.

Virtual Own Place

If you have secured your own place in the Virtual London Marathon, we would love you to use your place to run with #TeamStroke. There’s no registration fee or minimum fundraising pledge, with everything you raise helping to fund our vital work.

To let us know, fill in the ‘Virtual Own Place’ registration form at the bottom of this page.
