The Virgin London Marathon event is an amazing experience. You will have the opportunity to line up with thousands of others ready to take on the challenge of a lifetime and raise millions of pounds for charities around the world.

Now is the time to apply for a charity place in the marathon. You can take in the atmosphere, achieve a personal ambition and run the race of your life.

Why run for FTCT?

As a small charity, we sadly can't buy London Marathon Gold Bond places, which are all allocated to other lucky charities. So, we partner up with Aid International Development, a grant making trust supporting a network of individual charities across the world.

If successfully selected, you would need to raise a minimum of £2,500, with 60% of funds going to our charity. You donation will help us to continue providing our grants programme, which every year helps over 600 children living in financial crisis.

Your hard earned donations could help to fund a new school uniform for children, so they can go to school in clothes that fit and don't have to feel embarrassed. Or a new mattresses for children, to help them get a proper night's sleep. Or speech therapy sessions for a child with language delay. Read some of the stories of the children we have helped. 

We’ll be your biggest supporters – providing your running vest, helping with fundraising ideas and giving you the encouragement and motivation to help you reach your goal.

We are very proud to offer you this chance to take part in the 2020 event, it is an experience of a lifetime.

What our past runners said

"The fashion retail market has been incredibly challenging so I chose to run for the FTCT, which supports families who work in my industry – it’s a wonderful caring charity. Having run the marathon several times before, I can honestly say that doing it for a good cause definitely has spurred me on and helped me stay motivated during long arduous runs. All in all, the London Marathon is the best experience EVER!” Two time FTCT Marathon runner, Rachel Bowman, Hobbs.
