Charity Places at London Marathon

It’s that time of the year again. The results of the 2024 TCS London Marathon ballot.

For some, it’s ecstasy while for others, it’s heartbreak.

In 2024, over 578,000 people tried their luck in the ballot, with only 58,000 places available for general entry. It may be somebody’s fourth or fifth disappointment in a row, leaving a feeling that the rejection is more personal than bad luck!

There is, of course, an alternative way to get a place in the 2024 London Marathon, and that’s with a charity place.

Charities are heavily reliant on public fundraising. They use mass participation events to generate significant income through the generous contribution of fundraisers and their supporters.
As the UK’s largest supplier of charity running vests, t-shirts and promotional items, we’re eager to help them, and help you.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of charity places offered.

Who knows, you might find a charity below that resonates with you and gives you the perfect opportunity to tick three boxes; run the 2024 TCS London Marathon, fundraise for a personable charity AND receive a premium Scimitar-made charity running shirt to run in!
