Charity Place runners
Applications for our 2025 London Marathon charity places are now open! Ronald McDonald House Charities UK have a limited number of London Marathon places each year. As such, we ask anyone who is interested in running for our charity to fill out our application form. This helps us shortlist all interested supporters and choose our runners for 2025. Please include as much detail as possible in your fundraising plans - we recommend at least three fundraising ideas to help you reach your £2,500 target.
We usually review all applications a year in advance of the race (April 2024 onwards) and inform everyone if they have been successful before the end of October (2024) - please note these timings may change. We will endeavour to keep our applicants informed of the application timelines.
Official Ballot and Own Place runners
We highly recommend everyone apply for the London Marathon public ballot if they would like to run for us. If you are successful in the public ballot, you can still run for Ronald McDonald House Charities UK. The public ballot for 2025 places has not opened yet and will likely open in April 2024. We will keep this page up to date and keep anyone who applies for a charity place up to date about the opening date of the public ballot.
All #TeamRMHCUK runners receive:
Knowledge that your fundraising will provide families with a ‘home away from home’ close to their sick child, ensuring they have more time and energy to focus on staying together (just £35 could help us accommodate a family for one night)
