London Marathon 2020 – run for charity

London Marathon 2020


Next year marks the 40th annual London Marathon, so 2020 will be a very special date for you to be a part of this world famous marathon.

The ballot to enter the 2020 London Marathon opens in early May, but at Norwood we already have a limited number of guaranteed places for people who raise money for charity.

With over 400,000 people applying for just 17,500 places in the ballot, and results not known until October, running for charity is the best way to guarantee you can participate in 2020’s London Marathon.

Buying a charity place today gives you a whole year to train for the marathon, and to raise as much money as possible for a good cause.


The London Marathon has raised over £900 million for charity since 1981, and holds the Guinness world record as the largest annual fund raising event in the world.

Join Norwood in 2020 at the London Marathon and you can be part of this Guinness world record event.

Registration is just £50, and all we ask that you set yourself a fundraising target of at least £1,900.

With just 26 places available, sign up today to reserve your place in the 2020 London Marathon.

We look forward to seeing you there!
