London Marathon 2023

We have just 5 guaranteed places available to join Team Bodie in 2023 at the TCS London Marathon.

Once again, thousands of runners from across the world will be taking part in the TCS London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April 2023, and we would love to make 2023 the year we have the biggest Team Bodie taking part yet! We ask anyone interested in running for us to please enter the main ballot initially, just in case you are lucky enough to secure a place! Please also contact Lucy Cervasio, Fundraising and Events Assistant, by email at lucy@bodiehodgesfoundation.co.uk to express your interest in running for the Bodie Hodges Foundation, using one of our ballot places. You will then be emailed a short form to complete. We ask that any runner who is given a ballot place pledges to raise a minimum sponsorship of £2,500 to enable us to continue to support families bereaved of a child (if you are lucky enough to secure your own place, there is no minimum fundraising pledge target).

We offer all members of Team Bodie fantastic fundraising support, giving you tips and inspiration on how to raise funds, as well as support through our social media channels. We will also provide you with a Bodie Hodges Foundation/Team Bodie running vest or t-shirt.
