Thank you for showing an interest in joining The Forward Trust’s 2019 London Marathon Team. The 2019 London Marathon will take place on Sunday 28th April.

The Forward Trust – Charity Place: 

To apply for a general place with Forward, please complete the below application form. We will be in touch in October to let you know if your application has been successful.

 If you are successful, there will be a non-refundable registration fee of £50, with a commitment to raise the minimum of £2,000. We will hold your place for a week until the registration fee is paid, after which your place on the Forward London Marathon Team will be guaranteed.

This year we have also reserved two London Marathon places exclusively for Graduates of our 'Rapt programmes'. If you are a Rapt Graduate and would like to run the London Marathon, please email  to request an alternative application form.

If you have any problems in completing the application form, please do not hesitate to email us at  or call us on 020 3752 5601.

Your own ballot place:

If you are successful in securing a ballot place (see London Marathon website for details), we would be delighted to have you join Team Forward; helping to empower people to break the often interlinked cycles of addiction or crime to move forward with their lives.


There is no registration fee or minimum fundraising pledge. Everything you raise will help people to make changes to create better lives with jobs, family, friends and a sense of community.
