Securing your place in Team Stroke

Charity Place

To apply for one of our charity places, please complete the ‘Charity Place’ application form at the bottom of the page. Please be as detailed as possible as to why you would like to run for us and how you plan to raise your pledged target.

We will be in touch by October to let you know if your application has been successful. Those who secure a place will need to pay a £50 registration fee and pledge to raise at least £2,000 for the Stroke Association.

Please set a reminder to ensure that you also apply to the ballot as we are always hugely over-subscribed for our charity places, so this will increase your chances of getting a prestigious 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon place.

Own Place

Entries for the 2021 London Marathon ballot are to be confirmed. Once they open, we advise all applicants to apply for a ballot place, selecting the Stroke Association as your preferred charity. If you are successful, we would love you to use your place to run with #TeamStroke.

Equally, if you have a deferred own place from 2020, a Good for Age or Running Club place, we’d love to have you run with us.

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.

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

Fundraising Support

We're here to help you get the best out of your fundraising - our team is bursting with ideas to share with you and happy to offer advice. We can provide ideas, support and fundraising materials to enhance and promote your fundraising activities, including our Fundraising A-Z, sponsorship forms, balloons, information leaflets, posters and more!

Get in touch

If you have any questions about this event or would like more information, please contact our fundraising team on 0207 940 1344 or supportercare@stroke.org.uk

Additional information

Our two cheer points are:

• Tower Bridge (outside Gordon & Co - 212 Tower Bridge Rd, London SE1 2UP) from 11.00am to 14.30pm.
