All of our places for the London Marathon 2023 are now filled. Good luck to our runners!

Register your interest in the 2024 event (date TBC) using the form at the bottom of this page.

The London Marathon is one of the most popular events in the athletics calendar.  Over 40,000 runners will take part in this famous 26.2 mile route and thousands of spectators will line the streets to cheer you on.

Places for the event in 2023 are highly sought after and Francis House has five places to allocate to dedicated supporters who feel they can commit to raising a minimum of £1,500.  We also ask successful applicants to pay a registration fee of £100.

This target sometimes seems like a daunting figure to raise, however there are endless ways of fundraising from bake sales to corporate sponsorship and match funding and we are here to support you every step of the way!

"The atmosphere throughout the entire course was electric and the city really felt united. Crossing over Tower Bridge (which passed by in a flash) was unforgettable thanks to the roaring crowds."

Alistair Orr ran for Francis House in the 2021 marathon

Lucky enough to secure a place through the ballot?

If you’re one of the lucky few to secure your own race place, we’d love you to run for Francis House. There is no minimum sponsorship – we are truly grateful of any donations.

All Francis House marathon runners will receive ongoing support from the Fundraising Team including fundraising materials, a running vest, plus training and fundraising guidance.

Francis House does wonderful work for local families and I'm proud to have raised money for them.”

Stephen Bradley, ran the virtual London Marathon in 2020
