Take part in the iconic London Marathon in its biggest ever year!
Date: Sunday 3rd October 2021
Registration fee: £50
Sponsorship Target: £2000
Please note – applications for a charity place are now closed, but you can still run for us if you have your own place in the London Marathon.
This year will be the biggest ever for London Marathon, with over 100,000 runners due to join the physical and virtual versions of the event on 3rd October.
The Vegan Society have one place in the London Marathon and due to the exclusivity of the event, we are asking for a large sponsorship target. We would expect anyone who applies for the place to have plans to reach the £2,000 fundraising goal.
The money you raise through your sponsorship will help us continue our important work, campaigning for better provision for vegans, supporting existing vegans and reaching new audiences with our messages about the benefits of veganism. You will fund our campaigns such as Future Normal, tapping in to animal lovers’ compassion, to help more people than ever make the connection and go vegan.
We understand that this is a large fundraising target but we will support you every step of the way, by providing:
- Fundraising tips to help you raise as much sponsorship as possible
- Training tips and advice
- A dedicated staff member to support you and answer any queries directly
- The Vegan Society branded running vest
- Support from The Vegan Society staff and volunteers on the day of the race
Once we have received your application, we aim to get back to you within a couple of weeks with a decision to give you plenty of time to train and fundraise.
If you have been successful in the London Marathon ballot and have your own place to run, you can choose to raise sponsorship for The Vegan Society. Please get in contact and we’ll still support you all the way to finish line.
