The difference you can make

The money you raise will go towards ensuring disabled people enjoy their right to be treated equally.

Even today in 2022, disabled people are treated as second class citizens in Britain, and progress isn’t coming fast enough. Many disabled people face multiple levels of discrimination every day, and 40% of disabled people live in poverty, without the means to live a life with dignity. This inequality and exclusion are simply wrong – unjust and unfair. It’s unacceptable disabled are expected to put up with this. We won’t put up with it.

We’re here to support disabled people to live the life they choose, more independently and free from discrimination. We know it’s possible.

Apply for a Scope charity place in the London Marathon and pledge your support for world where disabled people are treated equally. Always.

Charity place

We have a limited number of places, so please tell us why you want to run with Scope and how you plan to raise the £2,000 minimum sponsorship. The more detail the better! We'll then be in touch to discuss your application.

Successful applicants will be sent a payment link to pay the £75 registration fee and secure their place. 

It was truly a remarkable experience, made even more memorable by the excellent ways you handled our participation.

Ballot place

If you already have a ballot place or 'good for age' place in the London Marathon, the good news is you can still run with Scope, we’d love to have you on the team!

You’ll get all the same support as our charity place runners but without a minimum sponsorship pledge. We just ask that you raise as much as you can. 


The London Marathon welcomes the use of standard wheelchairs and race runners in the mass participation event.

Free places for guides and support runners are issued where necessary. Guides and support runners will receive a finisher's medal, t-shirt and recovery bag when they cross the finish line. 

All participants must complete the event by the official cut-off time which is currently 7pm. If you would like to request a waiver of the cut-off time for medal purposes, you can submit a request to the London Marathon. 

2022 London Marathon

Looking for something sooner? We still have places for the 2022 London Marathon taking place on Sunday 2 October. Head over to our 2022 London Marathon webpage to apply for a place. 

I can honestly say that I don’t think I could have coped had it not been for the helpline. They have given me so much time and support through all my difficulties and battles.
