Run the London Marathon for the AHT

Run the London Marathon

The London Marathon is one of the most iconic sporting events in the country. You can run for the AHT with either a golden bond place or a ballot place – your fundraising will be supporting lifesaving research which helps dogs, cats and horses live healthier lives, all over the world.

To run for the AHT, contact our events team at or call 0207 025 0035.

If you have a ballot place for the London Marathon you can still raise funds for the AHT through your marathon run. Our ballot place runners receive all the same support as our golden bond runners but do not have a minimum fundraising target. Please contact us so we can add you to team AHT and support you in your marathon journey!

If you have applied for one of our golden bond places we ask that you raise £2,000 for the Animal Health Trust. As one of our runners, you will receive a welcome pack, monthly updates, fundraising materials and a personalised AHT running vest. Our fundraising team will also be there on the day to cheer you along and congratulate you at the finish line.

To apply, please fill in an application form and return it to our events team.

London Marathon 2017

We had six fantastic runners in the AHT team taking on the London Marathon for us in 2017. These fundraisers managed to raise a whopping, record-breaking total of just under £12,000 between them and we were thrilled at their amazing efforts, all in the name of animal health and welfare. We couldn’t be more grateful for all the training and effort our runners put into their challenges, and we are always looking for enthusiastic runners and fundraisers to join our ranks!
