Deferring your place
Once you’ve withdrawn, you may have the chance to defer your TCS London Marathon place to the following year.
Your eligibility to defer depends on the type of place you have – so please read the eligibility criteria below carefully.
If you are eligible to defer to the 2024 event, we’ll email you with further information by Monday 5 June. Please only get in touch from Monday 5 June if you have not heard from us by this date.
Enhanced deferral options if you are pregnant or postpartum
If you are unable to run in 2023 because you are pregnant or postpartum, you can defer your place to one of the following three years: 2024, 2025 or 2026. If you are pregnant or postpartum and qualified for a Good For Age* or Championship place for 2023, you can defer your entry to the same category as your original place without the need to qualify again.
* Please note that your Good For Age place will be in the appropriate age category for the newly-selected marathon.
