Virgin Money London Marathon

Join Team Farm Africa

The London Marathon is one of the most iconic races in the world, where the capital comes together to support thousands of runners as they push themselves to their limits to raise money for charity. With a route that runs past royal parks, palaces and Parliament, it's never less than breathtaking.

Run for us in 2020 and support our vital work in eastern Africa, helping farming families turn their backs on poverty forever. When you become part of team Farm Africa we'll support you every step of the way, from your first run to cheering you on the day!

Apply for a charity place

Farm Africa has a very limited number of places in the 2020 race. Places are in high demand, so please take the time to complete your application, concentrating on your connection and motivation behind running for Farm Africa and how you plan to meet the minimum sponsorship target.
