Apply for a Charity Place

If you want to join our team and help working horses and donkeys across the globe, please apply now. There's strong competition for this event so spend some time on your application and tell us why you deserve a place.

Applications are being assessed on a daily basis so we will let you know shortly if you have a place. Please note that applications for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon will close on Wednesday 30 January.

Please note, for one of our charity places we ask that runners commit to a minimum fundraising pledge of £2,000 (excluding Gift Aid) to cover the cost of the place and raise money for Brooke. We also ask that all successful applicants pay a non-refundable £50 registration fee to secure their place.

The Virgin Money London Marathon is a truly inspiring event, with over 39,000 people taking part every year. Running for Brooke will improve the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules across the globe. Being part of Team Brooke means you will be supported every step of the way. 

This is the third run I’ve done for Brooke and my most amazing experience so far. The atmosphere is just unforgettable. I can’t wait to run again next year. The support of friends, family and clients has been brilliant. I couldn’t recommend running for Brooke highly enough: it’s a great cause and they’re a great team.
