London Marathon charity places

Applications for guaranteed charity places are open and you can apply by clicking apply now above. 

Successful charity places are asked to pay a registration of £75. For each charity place there is a target to raise £2500 for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre.

If you have your own place for this event by being successful in the ballot or deferring your place from 2019, you can secure your place on #TeamPCRC too!  There is no fundraising requirement, we just ask that you raise as much as you can to support us funding research towards a life without prostate cancer.

Why take on the London Marathon for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre?

At PCRC, we focus on researching advanced prostate cancer. This is because prostate cancer is treatable when it is confined to the prostate, but once it spreads to other parts of the body, it becomes incurable and dangerous. We urgently need better treatments for men with this life-threatening disease, and we can only do that by funding excellent, ground-breaking research. Every pound that you raise will help us achieve our vision of a better future for men with prostate cancer. You can help us use science to turn hope into reality.
