TCS London Marathon

Run the prestigious London Marathon with #TeamFarmAfrica!

The London Marathon is one of the best races in the world for both the experienced runner and the beginner! This iconic race sees the capital city come together and create an unbeatable atmosphere, supporting thousands of runners as they push themselves to their limits while raising money for charity. With a route that runs past Royal Parks, Parliament and finishes in-front of Buckingham Palace, it's never less than breath-taking.


There are two ways to join #TeamFarmAfrica...


Apply for a charity place

Farm Africa applications for team 2023 are now open!

We carefully review each application we receive, so make sure to tell us why supporting Farm Africa is so important to you and how you plan to fundraise. We will get back in touch to let you know whether or not you've been successful.


Apply for a ballot place

The 2023 TCS London Marathon announced the ballot winners on Monday 24 October 2022.

If you were one of the lucky ones to win the ballot, received your place through a running club or have a deferred entry, we would be delighted to have you join Team Farm Africa!

You will receive all the same support from our dedicated events team as those with a charity place, and you can even set your own fundraising target! Get in touch by email to let us know:


I can’t believe I actually did it. I’m not the sportiest of people so to run a marathon is remarkable. It wasn’t the fastest of times but I really didn’t mind about the time, I just wanted to finish. I had so much support along the way, which was fantastic!
