Apply for a charity place

Applications for charity places in the 2018 race are now open. To apply for a SSAFA place please fill in the online form providing as much information in your application as possible.  

We will be in touch with everyone after the results of the public ballot are announced in October to let people know the outcome of the charity places. Please note that while we try and offer as many places as we can we always receive more applications than we have places for. In this event we will put runners on a reserve list and try to offer everyone a position in an alternative marathon event.

To run with teamSSAFA we ask you to commit to raising £2000 in sponsorship and a £100 registration fee is payable on acceptance of a place.

If you would like more information about the event please email

Already have a place?

If you were lucky enough to be successful in the ballot and would like to run for SSAFA please contact us to take part as an Own Place runner. Once we receive this we can send you a TeamSSAFA running vest and some fundraising tips. If you have your own place there is no obligation to fundraise, but if you would like to you can raise as much as you would like.
