When we refer to 'own places' we mean places that are bought directly from the race organisers.
If you buy a place from a race organiser, you will pay an entry fee to them - then you can choose which charity team to join. We hope you'll choose Oxfam.
It doesn't matter what race you have a place in - it can be the London Marathon or your local 10K - we would love to have you on the team.
Some races fill up really quickly and getting a place from the race organisers can be difficult. The good news is, if you don't manage to secure your own place, you can still run in a lot of events by getting an Oxfam charity place.
If you've already got your own place in an event and would like to join the Oxfam team, let us know and we'll send you pack and a running top!
