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...


Apply for a RESERVE charity place for 2024

Charity places for the TCS London Marathon 2024 have now been allocated.

However from time to time we receive a drop out due to unforeseen circumstances and would love a group of reserve runners on standby! Any application we receive will be considered for the 2025 race too. Good luck!

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.

Open to running in another marathon?? 

We have charity places in the Barcelona, Paris, Edinburgh and Amsterdam marathons too!

Did you win the ballot?!

The results are in! 

The 2024 TCS London Marathon ballot results were announced on Thursday 6 July 2023.

Congratulations 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 the same support from our dedicated events team as those runners with a charity place, rather than a set fundraising target of £2,000, we ask you to raise as much as you possibly can! Get in touch and share the good news:


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!
