I'm afraid for London Marathon, London Triathlon et al charities have to pay huge moolah to get their entries so inevitably someones sponsorship money goes to pay for them.

A friend of mine who was working for a small local charity applied for London Triathlon places, she was shocked to be told that she had to purchase them in bulk (batches of 10 or something - apologies I can't remember exact details) for quite a sum of money (£100's not £10's).  That was two years ago.

As an event organiser I can understand that there is a cost involved and in the tri world that cost can be quite extensive hence the higher prices.  

Mind you  - I still can't understand why the VLM charges such a high price for their charity places but that's a discussion for another day...

So far as I am away IMUK has official charity places through the local Rotary club with a minimum pledge of £1,000.00, I think you have to pay £100.00 with your entry.

The North American IM races all have charity slots but are $1,000.00 dollars and YOU pay that amount for a place!
