If I am unsuccessful in the ballot, or missed my chance to enter the ballot, what are my other options for gaining entry to the TCS London Marathon?

There are a number of ways to enter the TCS London Marathon in addition to the ballot.

Every year a small number of places are offered through competitions on our social media channels and those of some sponsors and partners, so make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter to be in with a chance to win.

You could also enter the virtual TCS London Marathon – the world’s biggest virtual marathon – and take on 26.2 miles your way, from wherever you are on the planet. All finishers in the virtual TCS London Marathon receive the same medal and New Balance finisher T-shirt as finishers in the mass event.

Alternatively, you could try to secure a charity place in the mass event and run for a cause close to your heart.
