London Marathon 2024

Join the Rhino Runners!

The London Marathon is the world’s largest fundraising event. On the famous 26.2 mile route, you’ll see the sights, soak up the atmosphere… and help us to save precious rhinos!

It is our favourite day on the calendar. Not only do we get to see incredible supporters tackling an awesome challenge, but we get to meet you in person and thank you for making a difference to the world’s rhinos while seeing a few of our iconic rhino costumes cross over London’s famous Tower Bridge!

On average, our crash of runners typically raise around £2,000 – £2,500 each; this helps us to cover the costs of your place on the team, while also maximising the funds for rhino conservation. Sometimes this seems like a daunting figure to raise; however, there are endless ways of fundraising, from bake sales to corporate sponsorship and match funding, and we’re here to support you every step of the way!

Please note that we will start recruiting for London Marathon 2024 in April 2023. We would love to hear from you then!

Our support for you

We’ll support you every step of the way so that you can make the most out of the London Marathon – for you and for rhinos! On marathon day itself, we have our herd of staff and volunteers at the start line, ready to wish you luck before you charge through London. And, in the afternoon, we set up camp in St James’ Park and enjoy a picnic with you and your family and friends. It’s your well-earned space to enjoy some treats and relax!

If you become a Rhino Runner, you’ll receive:

  • A dry fit team t-shirt

  • A pack to welcome you into the Rhino Runners team
  • Regular, personal team emails with advice on fundraising and updates on our conservation work

  • A friendly pre-marathon team evening to meet the other runners and all of us at Save the Rhino before race day. Receive first-hand advice and hear about the fantastic work you are supporting
  • A pre-event team gathering and warm-up
