How to join our team

1. Apply for a Team Amnesty Charity Entry

Apply for a charity place with Team Amnesty and we’ll let you know as soon as we can if you’ve secured a spot. Please note that due to the cancellation of the 2020 event, a number of charity entries are currently allocated to deferred runners so places are more limited than usual.

2. Use your own ballot place to run for Team Amnesty

If you manage to secure a ballot place in the London Marathon 2024, we’d love to have you on our team. You’ll receive the same level of support from us as our charity place runners and you can set your own fundraising target.

​​​​​​How we'll support you

Whether you join Team Amnesty on one of our prized charity places or are successful in the ballot, we’ll provide all the support you need to reach the finish line, including:

  • Personalised training plan and one-to-one support from a specialist running coach.
  • Regular Team Amnesty email updates
  • Dedicated member of Amnesty staff for one-to-one support
  • Team Amnesty running vest, which you can add your name to
  • Amnesty materials on request
  • Access to a private Team Amnesty virtual group to share tips with your fellow team-mates
  • Cheerers to support you on the day 
  • Team Amnesty marathon reception with showers, lunch and a sports massage.

We know the commitment that running a marathon entails and will do everything we can to help you fulfil this incredible challenge. Amnesty International UK couldn't exist without people like you, supporting others around the world denied their human rights.
