TCS London Marathon 2024

TCS London Marathon: Registration Fee £100 Minimum Sponsorship £2000

You understand you are taking part in the London Marathon on Sunday 21st April 2024. 
You acknowledge that you will be contacted by email, phone, SMS and post in relation to the TCS London Marathon, ensuring NCT can deliver the necessary administration and communication required to assist you to complete your successful participation in the event. 
You will have one month from NCT offering you a place to pay your registration fee. You acknowledge the registration fee once paid is non-refundable and cannot be used towards your sponsorship pledge. Until payment is received your place is not secured and could be offered to other runners. 

You acknowledge that payment of the registration fee means that you are accepting these terms and conditions. 
You acknowledge this is a fundraising event and commit to raise the minimum sponsorship pledge, excluding any Gift Aid or employer match giving.  
When fundraising, you will act lawfully and must not do anything that may harm the reputation of NCT or act in a manner contrary to our values. You must make it clear you are fundraising in “aid of NCT” and are not fundraising “on behalf of” NCT. You are responsible for organising all aspects of your fundraising and NCT will not accept any liability relating to your fundraising. 
You agree that your fundraising will not include: 

  • Raising funds by carrying out door-to-door unsolicited collections. 
  • Collecting in any public place without first obtaining permission from
  • NCT, authorisation from the local authority and any other licences or consent that NCT requires you to obtain. 
  • Collecting on private property (including shops, pubs etc) without first obtaining permission from NCT and permission of the owner of the private property. 
  • Conducting any raffle or lottery or putting on any public event without first contacting NCT and taking any steps which NCT requires. 
  • You commit that your volunteer fundraising activities will be delivered in accordance with the Code of Fundraising Practice. If you have any questions about the code, please contact

If you wish to use NCT’s logo, please contact who can provide an “in aid of” logo. You must also comply with any local restrictions or government guidelines on coronavirus and social distancing. 
You agree to secure a licence from the relevant local authority before collecting funds on the street or in a public place. You acknowledge you are responsible for obtaining any such licence and this is not the responsibility of NCT.  
You agree to send all sponsorship funds collected or raised to NCT by no later than Monday 29th July 2024. 
You agree to ensure any cheques relating to your sponsorship are made payable to NCT and sent to the NCT Finance, Brunel House, 11 The Promenade, Clifton Down, Bristol, BS8 3NG with the event name, your full name, and address. 
When fundraising, you will make your donors aware that a proportion of the money you raise will go towards paying for your place in the event. NCT carefully budget to ensure that as long as you meet or exceed your pledge, those we support will benefit from your participation in the event. However, it is critical you make your donors aware of this. 
Should you fail to meet the minimum sponsorship, you agree make up for the shortfall in funds pledged. For example, by undertaking a fundraising venture of your own or a personal donation. 
Any existing regular donations that you may make to NCT do not form part of the total raised through sponsorship.  
If you are linked to an NCT branch and would like a proportion of the funds raised to be allocated to this branch you will need to notify and understand that 30% of funds raised will be directed toward a local NCT group (branch) and 70% will be used to support NCTs work nationally. 
You must register your contact details with the London Marathon console, by a date to be confirmed by the event organisers in due course, to take part in the event. We will let you know you well in advance of what action is required. 
If you have to withdraw prior to the event, you must notify the NCT Members Team immediately and before the registration deadline if possible. This means we can re-allocate your place to someone else. Any money raised will be retained as a donation towards NCT. If you wish to refund your donors, you must ask your individual donors to make a written request to NCT. 
If you have to defer your place, you must notify the NCT Members Team immediately. Due to the limited numbers of places available we are unable to guarantee we can defer your place. We will need to take every request on a case-by-case basis as and when they are received.  
You acknowledge that NCT will share your contact details with the TCS London Marathon in which you are taking part. We will never share your data with any other third parties or used in any other way, unless you agree.
