I would like a charity place


Thank you for your interest. Charity place entry for the 2020 marathon is not open yet.

Please email if you would like to be notified as soon as places become available!

I have my own place


Congratulations on securing your own place - we'd love to have you on the team! You’ll get all the same support as our charity place runners, but you won’t need to commit to a sponsorship target.

Run with your own place

The support you'll get

  • A Versus Arthritis running vest
  • An official welcome pack full of helpful training and fundraising advice
  • Dedicated training and fundraising support from our team before and after the race
  • Access to our closed Facebook group where you can talk to our community of supporters and benefit from their years of experience

Other Challenges

From walking, to running, to cycling - we have a wide range of challenges to suit all abilities.
