Gold Bond Application Form

Applications for a Children's Hospice South West charity place (Gold Bond) in the TCS London Marathon need to be completed by 29 June 2024. 

All funds raised through the event must be payable to Children's Hospice South West in pounds sterling. We suggest our charity place runners pledge to raise sponsorship of £2,000.00 (excluding gift aid) for CHSW. The objective is to raise as much sponsorship as possible. 

If you are successful with your application, there will be a £70 administration fee to confirm your place.

We also operate a reserve list for unsuccessful applicants, should successful Gold Bond runners have to drop out due to injury, or are later successful in the public ballot. Please note, a completed application form does not guarantee your place.

If you have any queries, please email Hollie Thorogood.
