The ballot for the 2025 TCS London Marathon has now closed and results will be announced in July.

All entrants will be emailed their result by the race organisers in July, and if you are successful, you’ll be allocated a place in the 2025 TCS London Marathon.

If you are lucky enough to secure a ballot place through TCS London Marathon, join TeamGOSH and we’ll support you every step of the way.

You’ll get exceptional support from our team, with access to professional training plans, fundraising support and personal advice from our dedicated coach.

As a ballot place holder, there is no minimum fundraising target - we only ask you to raise what you can.

Run with us and help support the seriously ill children and young people who are seen at GOSH for life-changing treatment and care every day.

We'll support you to the finish line

How does the TCS London Marathon ballot work?

The 2025 TCS London Marathon ballot will be open from Saturday 20 April and close on Friday 26 April.

The ballot is drawn at random, so everyone has the same chance of success.

The London Marathon organisers will be emailing the results of the 2025 London Marathon ballot to all entrants (Timing TBC). Good luck!

What happens if I didnt get a place?

If you were unsuccessful in the ballot but you still want to be part of this incredible challenge, you could apply for one of our charity places.

Please note, we always receive more applications for the TCS London Marathon than we have places, so we can't guarantee that everyone who applies will be able to secure a marathon place.
