How CRunCH works for you

CRunCH - the Charity Runners Clearing House - teams up people who want to run the TCS London Marathon with charities that have guaranteed or “Golden Bond” places to offer. (We also match runners who have their own place via the Club system or the Public Ballot with the charity of their choice.)

If you have arrived here without a particular cause in mind, you can choose from a wide range of charities offering hundreds of guaranteed places to people willing to raise sponsorship funds.

If selected, you will be asked to sign a Pledge Form committing to raise an agreed amount. Pledges for 2024 ranged from £1,200 to £2,500, with most charities stipulating a minimum of at least £1,500.

Since 1997, CRunCH has found places for many thousands of runners who together have raised around £25 million for good causes. Most of these runners would otherwise have missed the chance to take part - and it's getting harder every year.
