Terms and Conditions for a guaranteed place in the 2024 TCS London Marathon, 21st April 2024 (the “Event”)

To participate in the Event you must agree to the terms and conditions below. These terms constitute the fundraising agreement between Eikon and you, as a participant.

Taking part

  1. You understand that the Event is not organised by Eikon, but by a third party (“Event Organiser”), in this case, the TCS London Marathon (“TCSLM24”). It is your responsibility to read any terms and conditions issued by the Event Organisers and to comply with these.
  2. You confirm that you are medically fit and that you participate in the Event at your own risk.  Eikon will not be held responsible for injury or illness resulting from your participation and it is your responsibility to ensure your fitness to take part in the Event.
  3. We define a Charity Place runner as anyone who has obtained a place in the TCSLM24 directly from Eikon and has committed to raise a minimum of £2,000 as a condition of the place, excluding Gift Aid and registration fee.  This should be received by Eikon by 19th May 2024.
  4. All Eikon Participants must be aged 18 or over by the Event Date.
  5. You understand that, if applying for a Charity Place, Eikon may need to notify the Event Organiser that you will be taking part, and share limited personal information so that the Event Organiser can contact you to confirm your registration for the Event.  You understand that, if needed, it will be your responsibility to complete the Event Organiser’s registration also.
  6. Eikon has a very limited number of spaces in the TCSLM24 and no guarantee can be given that your application will be successful.  We may receive more applications than we have event places, so unfortunately not everyone who applies is guaranteed a place.  Your application will be reviewed by the Eikon team and you may be contacted to discuss your application by email or phone.  We reserve the right to refuse applications at our absolute discretion without providing reasons for doing so.
  7. You acknowledge that the £100 registration fee is non-refundable, and that Charity Places in the Event are non-transferable.  The registration fee does not contribute towards your fundraising target.
  8. If your application is successful and you pay your £100 registration fee, we will provide you with details on how to register on the Event Organiser’s online entry system.  You are required to complete your registration by the date communicated by London Marathon Events Team.  If you do not complete the TCSLM24 online entry system you will lose your place and you will not be entitled to a refund or a deferral.
  9. You agree to contact Eikon by emailing fundraising@eikon.org.uk if you are unable to take part in the Event and forward any money raised to Eikon to support our vital work supporting young people in Surrey.
  10. Any quotes, images, video, and audio we collect from you during the course of your London Marathon 2024 journey may be used by Eikon in future marketing materials.
  11. You will inform fundraising@eikon.org.uk immediately if you are unable to take part in the Event.  In the event of injury, or if you can no longer take part in the Event you can terminate your place at any point by emailing fundraising@eikon.org.uk.  We regret that we are unable to refund any registration payments made to us.  Should you withdraw, you may return all your sponsor forms and forward monies raised (provided your sponsors agree to this) to Eikon or return monies to your sponsors.  Your registration fee will not be refunded.

Fundraising

  2. You understand and will make clear to those who support your fundraising that any money you send into Eikon will be treated as a donation and used for Eikon’s work helping young people in Surrey and beyond.  Donations are not generally refundable, even if you fail to take part in or withdraw from the event.
  3. Any fundraising you undertake in connection with your participation in the Event will be for Eikon only (applicable to Charity Place participants) and you will regularly forward all monies donated to the Charity no later than 19th May 2024 by:

  6. You will, if the sum of £2,000 has not been paid by 19th May 2024, pay the remainder from your own personal funds within one month of this date or in instalments to be agreed in writing with Eikon. 
  7. You agree to only use lawful means to fundraise for Eikon and will not bring the charity’s names into disrepute.  You agree to observe the following fundraising rules and comply with any further rules and requirements about fundraising of which Eikon notify you:

    • Obtain approval from Eikon before approaching press or celebrities to support your event.
    • You must secure the necessary approvals prior to undertaking street collections or collections on private property. House-to-house collections are not permitted.
  8. You agree to take responsibility for the safe keeping of money raised in Eikon’s name, both during and after the collections, until it is transferred to Eikon and you will:
    • Ensure that if collecting cash, it is counted in the presence of at least one witness and that this amount is written, signed by the witness/es and a cheque for this amount is sent to Eikon.
    • Send Eikon completed sponsor forms with details of the names and addresses of and amounts donated or pledged by all sponsors no later than 19th May 2024.  This will allow Eikon to process Gift Aid on donations.  Please note that we will not contact your sponsors.
    • Only use sponsorship forms issued by Eikon and not use any other type of sponsorship form (unless otherwise agreed with Eikon).

We recommend that you print and keep a copy of this agreement with a note of the date on which you accepted its terms and conditions.
