“Thank you so much for all the support The Soldiers’ Charity has giving me on my first ever marathon. The training day in London and the continuous emails I have received from yourself. It has really helped considering how daunting the whole thing was but I did it!”

– Abbey Smith, London Marathon runner 2017

Terms & Conditions

You must be 18 or over on the day of the event in order to run. A registration fee of £100 is non – refundable and does not count towards your sponsorship total. Upon offer of a running place you will be asked for payment of this fee to confirm your participation.

I wish to run in the Virgin London Marathon 2021 and to raise funds for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. I understand the minimum sponsorship for this marathon is £2,000 (excluding Gift Aid and registration fee).

At the time of writing I am not aware of anything that is likely to prevent me from training for and taking part in the race. If I am awarded an ABF The Soldiers’ Charity Golden Bond entry and unable to run for any reason, I will let you know as soon as possible so that my entry can be given to another runner.
