Take on one of the world's most famous marathons for Beat and experience an incredible atmosphere as you run past the iconic sights of the capital including Big Ben, Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge, and Buckingham Palace.

Join Team Beat at the start line and help change the lives of people affected by eating disorders. Our friendly team will be there to support you every step of the way.

How can I take part?

Our applications are now closed for our charity places, but if you’re lucky enough to secure your place directly through the London Marathon ballot, we’d love for you to join Team Beat. There’s no minimum fundraising target; we simply ask that you raise as much as you can.

If you have personal experience of an eating disorder or current health issues, you should not take part in the TCS London Marathon if doing so could put your health and wellbeing in jeopardy. Successful applicants who have had any experience of an eating disorder may be required to provide a doctor’s certificate stating that they have a suitable level of fitness to participate.

I have my own place

Let us know that you have secured your place directly through the ballot.
