We are pleased to announce applications for the London Marathon 2021 charity places are now open.

With thousands of people lining the roads to scream your name as you run this iconic route, this really is an experience that will live with you forever.

Charity Places

Please fill out the application form below to apply for a Solving Kids' Cancer charity place. Please note, we have a very limited number of charity places available and receive many applications. It is important that you provide as much detail as possible on why you want to run for us and what your fundraising plans are. We have a £3,000 sponsorship target.

We will let runners know in early 2021 if they have been successful in getting a charity place. If you are successful, there will be a £50 registration fee to pay to confirm your place. Please note this fee is only applicable if you are selected to be part of the Solving Kids’ Cancer London Marathon team.

In our quest to be able to help as many children as possible with high-risk neuroblastoma, both today and in the future, we are accepting applications for those who would like to raise money to directly support the vital work of Solving Kids' Cancer. If you would like to raise money for a specific child or appeal through a different challenge event, please get in touch with Sophie on [email protected]
