Matt Campbell, who featured in the BBC television show "Masterchef: The Professionals" last year, collapsed Sunday at the 22.5-mile mark.
"Although he received immediate medical treatment on the scene from race doctors, he died later in hospital," the statement said.
Campbell, from the Lake District in northwest England, was raising money for a youth charity and told his Instagram followers on the morning of the race he was running in honour of his late father.
