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.

How to join #TeamFarmAfrica in 2024...

The 2024 TCS London Marathon is on Sunday 21 April. 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

2024 race - The 2024 TCS London Marathon ballot is open until 28 April 2023! Apply by clicking this link - good luck!

The winners will be announced by the marathon organisers on Monday 24 October 2023.

If you are one of the lucky ones to win the ballot or have received your place through a running club (or even deferred your entry from 2023), 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!
