Charity place application - London Marathon 2023

Thank you so much for your interest in taking part in the London Marathon on Sunday 23 April 2023 for Farm Africa. 

Farm Africa have a limited number of guaranteed places in this event! Kindly read the below and complete the application form if you would like to be considered on the 2023 team for the London Marathon

If you are successful in being offered one of our places, we ask all participants to pay an initial non-refundable registration fee of £60 and to raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £2,000 (exclusive of Gift Aid). Every pound you raise in sponsorship will empower farmers in eastern Africa to grow more, sell more and sell for more, while protecting the environment for years to come.

Please only apply if you are confident you can commit to this amount, as your sponsorship money is so important to help Farm Africa continue its life transforming work in eastern Africa. Due to the popularity of this event, please complete this form in as much detail as possible to support your application, in particular your realistic fundraising pledge, your connection to the cause and how you intend to raise sponsorship and awareness.

A member of our events team will be in touch with you soon. Good Luck!
