Why run for MS-UK?

When you join #TeamPurple it’s about more than just running. You will be helping us continue our work supporting people affected by multiple sclerosis, and that’s what it’s all about.

We take your commitment seriously, so every single MS-UK marathon runner has a dedicated member of the fundraising team who is there to support you every step of the way. On the road to race day you’ll get a personalised welcome pack, an MS-UK technical running t-shirt or vest with your name on, a closed Facebook group so you can connect with other team members, regular e-newsletters and a chance to meet the team in person over Zoom.

Every penny you raise makes such a difference. With your help, we can reach more people with multiple sclerosis and support them to lead happier and healthier lives.
