Apply for a place with Hft

We have limited Hft charity places for the Virgin London Marathon, so we ask you to complete the form below so that we can decide who to give our places to. Our places are very valuable and we aim to raise a minimum of £18,000 from our runners. If you feel you are unable to raise the £1,750 sponsorship please consider carefully if you still would like to have one of our charity places.

We need your title, name, and contact information in order to liaise with you about the event and send you your welcome pack, running vest, and other event-specific materials.

We will also use your address information to send you news and updates about Hft, plus information about Hft Trading Ltd, unless you opt out of receiving information in this way.
