Could you run the London Marathon to help horses?

We are fortunate enough to have 5 Golden Bond places in the TCS London Marathon each year. We hold a ballot system for these places and ask our potential runners to apply individually first before we hold our own ballot when the TCS results are known. Find out more about entering the TCS London Marathon here.

A minimum fundraising target applies and you will receive full fundraising support and materials, including a branded running top and medal, and full entry to the race.

We would love you to run in support of us at your chosen distance too, and will be happy to support you if you have an individual place in your favourite race be it a 10k, half marathon or tough mudder! Contact fundraising@worldhorsewelfare.org for more information.

Previous running events

Our Deputy Chief Executive Tony Tyler has run several marathons previously to raise funds to support our work and then decided to up the distance AND add mountains! Tony tackled the Lakeland 50 – a 50-mile ultra marathon across the Lake District in 24 hours. The Lakeland 50 is nearly double the distance of a marathon, over rough terrain and with approximately 3100m of ascent to navigate. Thank you very much Tony!
