London Marathon Runner - Superhero

Join #TeamOrange at the London Marathon 2021 and show the world just how much muscles matter.


The London Marathon needs no introduction. It’s one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Our #TeamOrange runners tell us the London Marathon is more than just a marathon; it’s an experience of a lifetime.


Charity places

We’re delighted to announce that our charity place applications for the London Marathon 2021 are now open! Registration is £100 and we ask all of our runners to pledge and commit to raise a minimum of £1,750 to help beat muscle-wasting conditions.

To be considered for a place, please fill out the form below. A member of the MDUK Events Team will then be in touch to let you know if your application has been successful.

Every year we receive high volumes of applications which is wonderful. The number of applications we receive every year exceeds the number of places we have to allocate so we have to come up with a process to allocate places which is detailed here.

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 London Marathon, we have a very limited number of places available for 2021. Please note that the 2022 event is only 6 months after the 2021 event and we have therefore opened applications for this too. You can apply for the 2022 London Marathon here! 


Own places (Ballot places)

 Getting a ballot place means that we can accommodate more people who weren’t successful in the ballot with a charity place. This will result in more #TeamOrange runners meaning that we will be able to raise more funds to support those living with muscle-wasting conditions.

If you are awarded a charity place with us but then find out that you’ve been lucky in the ballot, get in touch to let us know. You will have the option to have your registration fee refunded and you’ll be welcomed to #TeamOrange with open arms with your own place. We just ask that you raise as much as you can.


Perks of the jog

We understand the huge commitment our runners make to take on this epic challenge. In return, we offer a support package that caters for your every pre- and post-race need. By joining #TeamOrange you’ll receive:

  • a personalised #TeamOrange running top
  • support from THREE enthusiastic #TeamOrange cheer squads along the route
  • support with your training and fundraising every step of the way from our dedicated events team
  • exclusive access to our lively and friendly Facebook group to chat with other members of the team
  • a post-event celebration where, as one previous runner said, we treat you ‘like a rock star’, with massages, showers and refreshments, just a stroll away from the finish line
