Congratulations on securing your place for the 2022 London Marathon as a part of #TeamDemelza! We are delighted to be welcoming you to the team! 

As you know, you need to raise a minimum of £2000.00 (not including Gift Aid) for the marathon, we know fundraising can be difficult so we have broken this down into some milestones for you. Please do all that you can to reach these milestones as we will not be able to officially confirm your place with London Marathon if you haven't reached these in time.

  • Milestone 1: 30% of your fundraising by Friday 3rd June 
  • Milestone 2: 60% of your fundraising by Friday 22nd July
  • Milestone 3: 80% of your fundraising by Friday 19th August
  • Milestone 4: 100% of your fundraising by Friday 11th November

If you have any questions at all then please don't hesitate to contact us on eventbookings@demelza.org.uk or 0300 365 3653
