The London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet. Over 1 million competitors have taken part and raised millions of pounds for good causes since the race began in 1981. If you’ve always wanted to take part in this iconic race, now is the time to apply for a Glaucoma UK charity place for the chance to cross that famous finish line.

Applied for a place through the London Marathon ballot?

The official 2022 TCS London Marathon ballot closed at 9.00pm on Friday 8 October 2021. The results were announced on 14 March 2022.
