Raise vital funds for your local NHS charity at the London Marathon 2021!

As a fundraising event, nothing can compete with the most iconic marathon in the world; a race like no other and one to tick off the bucket list.

We would love to have you as part of our running team!


Your own place in the ballot

If you are successful in the Virgin Money London Marathon public, gotten a place through a running club, or have a deferred entry, we would love for you to join team Over and Above!

As an own place runner you receive all the same support as those with a charity place, but there is no set sponsorship target for you to meet.

Sounds good? Register your interest here


Apply for a charity place

We only have one golden ticket for this year’s London Marathon. The closing date for applications is Sunday 28th March when we will notify everyone who applied for the space of our decision.

 How we’ll support you

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or first time runner, Over and Above will be there to support you every step of the way and to make sure your London Marathon experience is one you’ll never forget!

How much does it cost to take part?

If you are offered a charity place we ask for a non-refundable deposit of £100 to secure your place. This can be added to your overall fundraising target.

How much do I need to fundraise?

If you receive an Over and Above charity place we ask you to raise a minimum of £2,000 in sponsorship (exclusive of Gift Aid).

If you are an own place runner then there is no minimum amount you have to raise.

What if I don’t hit my target?

We ask that you only apply for a charity place if you are confident you can commit to raising the £2,000. Don’t worry though, we’ll be there to support you every step of the way!!

In the unlikely event you are struggling to meet your target two weeks after the event, you will be asked to make up the difference
