Join us for the TCS London Marathon on 23 April 2023. Take on the iconic 26.2-mile race with #TeamStroke and help us to rebuild lives after stroke.
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 Application
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 in 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 2023 TCS London Marathon place.
If you have been lucky enough to secure your own place in the 2023 TCS London Marathon ballot, we would love to welcome you to #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 Marathon Own Place
If you're joining the Marathon with your own Virtual Marathon place, we would love to welcome you to the #TeamStroke virtual team, please choose the ‘Virtual 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 the same support from our team as those taking part in the physical London Marathon.

- Stroke Association running top plus iron-on letters.
- Regular team emails with training and fundraising tips.
- Fundraising pack.
- Race-day support from our two cheer points.
