Whether you are running the race or taking part in a wheelchair, we are looking for people with their own place in the TCS London Marathon to join Team WheelPower.

As an own place runner, you’ll get the same support from our dedicated events team as those with a charity place. And you can set your own fundraising target!

By clicking on ‘Join the WheelPower team’, you’re telling us that you already have a place in the 2024 London Marathon. WheelPower will not consider you for a charity place.

Whether this will be your first marathon, or you’re a seasoned pro, we’d love for you to join our Team!

“It was always been a BIG dream of mine to run the London Marathon and it was just an amazing experience and one of those things you’ll never forget. The atmosphere and encouragement you get from crowds is so lovely and heart-warmingand I felt extremely privileged to be running the marathon for this fantastic charity." Caroline from Essex

TCS London Mini Marathon Championships

The London marathon is committed to supporting distance running from playground to podium, and the mini marathon is a great place to start your journey!

  • The Mini Marathon is completely FREE to enter and all participants will also receive a free t-shirt for taking part! You can use either day chair or racing chair. There is no entry requirement and you don’t need to be classified in athletics or a member of a club.

Event criteria:

  • All wheelchair participants must be able to self-propel themselves over 2.6K within the time limit of 45 minutes
  • Participants must wear a helmet and gloves and can either use a standard, sports or racing chair
  • There will be opportunities for athletes to be fully classified before the race, which we would encourage you to do before you apply

For further details on taking part in these categories, please contact Michelle Weltman, the TCS Mini London Marathon Wheelchair and Ambulant/Para Athlete Coordinator, at paraathletes@londonmarathonevents.co.uk
