Covid notice

Due to the ongoing Covid pandemic and the delayed running of the 2020 London Marathon, the 2021 event has been moved from its usual date in April to Sunday 3 October 2021. As things stand (October 2020) it is due to go ahead in its usual form as a mass participation event on the streets of central London, however this is subject to change in line with Covid restrictions.

Join our team

Unfortunately all our own places in the 2021 London Marathon have already been allocated but if you are lucky enough to be awarded a place in the public ballot (results to be announced in January 2021) you can still join our team and help us to build better schools and brighter futures for disadvantaged children in rural Kenya.

Please get in touch if you are interested – we would be delighted to hear from you!


Frequently asked questions

We are a small charity with limited resources but we would give you as much support with your fundraising as we can, including help with setting up a fundraising page and promoting your fundraising. As a member of Team AP you would receive a free, personalised running vest or t-shirt to wear on the day and during your training.

Unfortunately we would not be able to provide you with any advice or guidance on training but the London Marathon website contains a wealth of information and advice on training plans, nutrition and gear.
