Will you take on the ultimate running challenge?

Sunday 21st April 2019

Join us on one of the world's most iconic marathon routes, cheered on by one of the world’s biggest crowds, and help us fight blood cancer. * We'll make sure you have all the support you need with training tips, nutritional advice, regular updates and support across our social media network. * We'll be with you every step of the way, so together we can show blood cancer what we are made of.

The most common way to enter the London Marathon through the public ballot which opens from Monday 30 April and closes at 17:00 on Friday 4 May. To apply for your ballot place, visit If you can secure a ballot place, you can join #TeamDKMS as an own place runner. This means that you'll receive the same support as our charity runners but there’s no minimum fundraising target - just have fun and raise as much as you can! You'll find out whether you are successful or not in early October.


DKMS has a very limited number of Gold Bond charity places in the London Marathon 2019 and regrettably we are unable to offer a place to every supporter who would like one. We have to commit our Gold Bond runners to raise a minimum sponsorship amount of £2,500. If you are unsuccessful in the public ballot would like to apply for a Gold Bond place, please contact . Our application process opens in October after the ballot results are announced.

By joining team DKMS, you will receive: * Regular training hints and tips to keep your body in tip top condition * Fundraising pack with tips to make your target easier to hit, so you can focus on the race * Dedicated support * A DKMS technical T-shirt so you look the part.
