How do I take part?

  • Each competitor will need to complete an official timed long distanced run (e.g., Park Run or club race) so their time can be verified. This will be added to your application and checked. Applications need to be in no later than Sunday 2nd April
  • The best 5 results in each age group and gender will be put forward to the competition squad which takes place on Saturday 22nd April starting at the Victoria Embankment. More information can be found on their website The championships - TCS London Marathon.
