Virgin Money London Marathon

Take on the iconic 2021 London Marathon with #TeamCleanBreak

Date: Sunday 3 October 2021
Deposit: £100
Sponsorship Target: £2,000

We are looking for someone amazing to take on the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 3 October 2021 and raise much needed funds for Clean Break.

Why run for Clean Break?

Your fundraising will help Clean Break produce ground-breaking theatre which puts women’s voices at its heart and creates lasting change by challenging injustice in and beyond the criminal justice system. With your support, we can help women build confidence, resilience and wellbeing through workshops and projects at our studios in London, in prisons and in the community.

We’ll be there to support you every step of your fundraising journey and provide plenty of fundraising ideas, motivational tips and Clean Break materials.

Clean Break’s women-only identity is crucial to our rationale. However, this marathon place is open to all.

As we only have one place available, we ask all those wishing to take part to fill in a short registration form outlining your suitability. Here we are looking at how you can demonstrate your commitment to Clean Break’s core values and the work we do.

If you are chosen as our runner, we will ask you to pay a deposit of £100 to secure your place. This will be returned to you when you have successfully reached the £2,000 sponsorship target.

Applications close on Monday 28 June, and we will get back to all applicants soon after this date. Terms and conditions can be found here.


Successful in the ballot? Why not run for us in 2021?

If you were lucky enough to bag a place through the ballot, we would love for you to join #TeamCleanBreak and receive the same support as a charity place runner. There is no sponsorship target.
