Or, if any of your friends or family members would like to run for us please ask them to get in touch with us.

Why run it for DPM?

Your fundraising through the London Marathon can make a huge difference for persecuted Christians in China and the Middle East. Our outreach workers help new believers build a strong foundation in their faith by making Derek's Bible teaching available in their own language. We also provide pastors and leaders from underground churches with solid training and free discipleship materials. 

What you need to know before applying

  • The 26.2-mile race will take place on Sunday, 26 April 2020 in London, UK.
  • We will be asking the successful runner to raise £2,000 from their friends, family and local church. And, we will also aim to raise more in sponsorship from our DPM supporters. 
  • The money you raise will help to make Derek’s teaching available in new languages and to provide life-changing Bible teaching for church leaders and believers in the Middle East and China.
