British Dyslexia Association - London Marathon 2022 Application

If you find the format of this form difficult and would like assistance in completing it, please phone 0333 405 4555 (extension 610) and a member of our team will be happy to help.

Thank you for your interest in joining #TeamBDA!

For some, pushing themselves to complete a marathon is a once-in-a-lifetime ambition, whereas for others, year-on-year they put their fitness to the test by pounding the streets for an immense 26.2-mile race. Whether you’re a seasoned competitor or a first timer, the moment of glory as you cross the finish line is as spectacular each and every time.

At the British Dyslexia Association we are proud to be able to offer a limited number of guaranteed entry places in the 2022 London Marathon which will be held on Sunday 2 October. 

The event will also be followed directly by Dyslexia Week from 3 - 9 October making it a great time to help build awareness, lead to earlier and more rapid identification of difficulties and greater availability of effective teaching for all children, young people and adults with dyslexia and other co-occurring differences.

The British Dyslexia Association is the voice of dyslexic people, working to build a society that supports the challenges associated with dyslexia. We aim to influence government and other institutions in order to promote a dyslexia friendly society that enables dyslexic people of all ages and from all backgrounds to reach their full potential.
As we only have a small number of places available we ask anyone who is interested in running to complete this form outlining why they would like to take part and their fundraising ideas. Please provide as much information in your application as you can, as we will use this to help us put together our 2022 team.

If offered a place, we require all team members to pay a £100 registration fee and commit to raising a minimum of £1,500 in sponsorship. The registration fee is non-refundable and helps cover the cost of the place with the London Marathon event organisers. 

This registration fee is due at the point of completing your registration for your place with the British Dyslexia Association, which will be sent to you by email if your application is successful. You will also be required to complete a registration with the event organisers directly. We will provide further information on how to do this and when the deadline is ahead of this.

If you have any questions about the 2022 London Marathon please get in touch with us at and we would be happy to help.
