FAQs

I’m taking part in this event for Centrepoint, can I get a Centrepoint running top to wear on the day?

Yes of course! You'll receive one as part of your registration in plenty of time before October so you can train in it.

Can I apply for a Centrepoint charity place if I have entered the ballot?

Absolutely – ballot places are hard to come by so it will only increase your chances of getting on that start line. If we offer you a place and you then find out you were successful in the ballot, we’ll refund your registration fee as long as use your ballot place to run for Centrepoint.

What training advice and support do you provide?

Running a marathon can be a wonderful experience and we provide support to make sure you enjoy every minute. We have a range of training and nutritional guides written by LDN PHYSIO. Our team will also provide support and resources to make sure you smash your fundraising target. If the circumstances allow, we may run an in-person training session nearer the day. If not, this will be virtual. 

I have an injury and now I can't take part in the event I signed up for. What should I do?

We're really sorry to hear that – please get in touch with our events team at events@centrepoint.org to let us know you won’t be taking part.

What happens if I don’t reach my fundraising target?

When you accept a Centrepoint charity place in an event, we ask you to reach a minimum fundraising target. The money you raise covers the cost of the event place and administration fees that Centrepoint have to pay for you to take part and helps us deliver the services we provide to homeless young people.

If you're concerned you won’t reach your fundraising target, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We're on hand to help you out with tips and ideas that will help you reach your target and we may be able to extend your deadline so that you have that little bit longer to fundraise.

I’m stuck for fundraising ideas. Can you help?

Absolutely! We are here to help you throughout your marathon journey. Drop us an email on events@centrepoint.org so we can personalise our support to get you started.
