Your second chance at a London Marathon place

In case you don't win a place in the official Virgin Money London Marathon ballot, you can still apply for one of our charity/Gold Bond marathon places. We'll ask you a few questions about why you'd like to fundraise for us and your fundraising targets to help us decide who will join #TeamAutism.

If you're still thinking about it, check out eight reasons to join #TeamAutism.

Eight reasons to run with #TeamAutism

The London Marathon is a massive challenge and we understand first-hand the huge commitment our runners take on for this event. So in return, we give you a support package that will see you through your training and the event, all the way to the post event celebration. This includes:

  1. fundraising materials and a downloadable planner to help boost your fundraising
  2. an online training zone, full of expert training tips, information on injury prevention and race nutrition
  3. access to our team training day in London with a qualified coach and a fundraising workshop
  4. a high quality charity running vest that you can personalise with iron-on letters
  5. a pasta party invitation, where you can join the events team and #TeamAutism runners in a carb-loading meal the night before the marathon
  6. support from our amazing autism cheer point to give you that extra push along the route – friends and family are encouraged to join in!
  7. a post-event reception at a hotel with massages, showers, food and photos. Again, friends and family are welcome
  8. and finally, our dedicated staff member, Rachael Lynch, who is on hand to answer any questions you may have.

What's it like to run with #TeamAutism?

It’s been a wonderful experience being on the team. We feel very privileged to be running for you. Thank you for everything. – Penny and Louise

Such an amazing team. The National Autistic Society made all the runners feel very special and appreciated. – Karl

Being part of #TeamAutism was a brilliant experience. There was lots of help and advice from the fundraising team and they couldn't do enough for us over the whole weekend. Very much hope to run with them again! – London marathon runner 2017

Great support, great team and great charity. Until everyone understands – we are a little closer – Mike

Congratulations to all of our amazing 2017 marathon runners. What a fantastic day! You guys were absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for all your hard work training and fundraising – you are all superstars!
