London Marathon 2021

Join the Rhino Runners!

The London Marathon is the world’s largest marathon run. On its famous 26.2 mile route, you’ll see the sights, soak up the atmosphere, and save Rhinos.

It is our favourite day of the year at Save the Rhino. Not only do we get to see incredible supporters taking on an awesome challenge, but we get to meet you in person and thank you for making a difference for rhinos, not to mention see a few of our famous rhino costumes cross over London’s famous Tower Bridge!

Registration for the London Marathon 2021 is now open. So don’t miss out, sign up to run for rhinos today!

On average our runners tend to raise around £2000 – £2500, this helps us to cover our costs of the place while maximising the funds for rhino conservation across our African and Asian field projects. 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!

If you would like to apply for one of our charity places, please fill out the registration form below. We’ll be in touch shortly after to let you know if you’ve got a place.

If you’ve been lucky enough to get your own place we’d love for you to use it to join Team Rhino. Email us at if you would like to join the team.

As part of our team, you’ll receive our support from the moment you sign up, all the way until after the race.
