Guts UK’s 5 places in the London Marathon!

5th March 2021

We are delighted to have 5 places in the London Marathon 2021. It’s not easy to secure just one place for the UK’s most popular running event, so we’re over the moon to have 5 places to offer you!

Scheduled for Sunday 3rd October, it is set to be the biggest ever staged marathon in the world with an incredible 100,000 runners due to take part. The physical event will see 50,000 people run the traditional course, from London’s Blackheath to The Mall. Another 50,000 people will be taking part in the virtual event around the globe.

As we only have 5 prized places to offer our wonderful supporters, to keep it fair, we will be holding a draw to enter the physical event. In the meantime, we’ve secured places in the virtual event to give an even better chance of running for us this year.


We will be supporting all our runners with a branded running vest and fundraising pack, as well as support with their fundraising pages through social media and Q&A sessions.

  • When: 3rd October, 2021
  • Where: Race starts in Greenwich, London. Ending at The Mall.
  • Why: If you’re familiar with the London Marathon, you’ll know that this may well be a once in a life-time opportunity!
  • Fundraising target: £2,000

FILL OUT THIS FORM TO APPLY FOR A PLACE:

  • Name: * REQUIRED

We’ll be announcing the successful fundraisers on 12th April. We will be in touch after this, to offer as many unsuccessful applicants as we can a chance to participate in the virtual event.
