Berlin Marathon

Run for charity

Applying for a charity place

To get started, choose your preferred cause from the official charity listing and hit ‘enquire’ to apply to join their team.

How does it work?

Applying for a place through the event’s Official Charity Programme, in partnership with realbuzz, means if your application is successful, you’ll get a guaranteed entry into the event. You just need to reach the minimum fundraising target requested by your charity, with support and guidance all the way through your charity running journey. Each charity has a certain amount of places on their team, which varies by charity, and places are often in high demand so the charity will vet your application. They will get in touch directly to keep you updated on your application.

Don’t see your charity here?

You may have a specific charity in mind that you’d like to run for. In this case you can run with realbuzz and fundraise for your chosen cause. Realbuzz has a number of charity places in the event exclusively for runners wishing to support their own charity. Just select ‘Own Charity Place’ to get started. Hurry, as this is a sold out event, there are limited places left. Find out more here.

Official Charity Partners

You can only have one ‘live’ application to a charity at any one time. Please look through the listings and choose a charity to support that is close to your heart. If your application is rejected you are able to submit an application to another charity or you can withdraw your application at any time by contacting Realbuzz Group and submit a new application to a different charity.

As well as including the personal information your charity will need to get in touch with you, your application will also include some information about your fundraising.

Remember, charities will receive a high volume of applications and will not be able to offer places to everyone. You are more likely to be accepted based on the quality of your application, specifically ‘Why do you want to participate?’ and ‘How will you meet your fundraising goal?’ so please think carefully about your answers. 

This will vary between charities, as a charity will close their applications once they have filled their limited amount of guaranteed charity places. To avoid disappointment, make sure you submit your application as early as possible.
