London Marathon 2025




We have 5 Golden Bond places for THE BEST running event in the UK, possibly the world!

Register to take part in 26.2 miles of pavement pounding along the closed off streets of London. Take in the breath taking scenery of this epic event with thousands of others for an event like no other!

Registration Fee: £100.00 (Non-refundable)

Fundraising Pledge: £2,500.00

Why we charge a fee:

As with any event there is a cost involved. Macmillan Caring Locally pay a fee to London Marathon Events for our Golden Bond places.

As with previous London Marathon events, when people sign up we ask them to raise a minimum amount of fundraising, unfortunately with a running event people can become injured or unable to fulfil their place due to circumstances out of their control.

In previous years, it is unfortunate when people have to pull out of their Golden Bond place but to register for their place still costs the charity money. At the time of pulling out, more often than not their fundraising hasn’t started or falls short of the target meaning Macmillan Caring Locally is at a loss.

We think a £100.00 registration fee is a fair amount to ensure the participant who is interested will be committed to raising money for Macmillan Caring Locally and to their training schedule.
