Feeling inspired by the London Marathon?

The marathon has been and gone for another year, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to all our runners from this year’s events! Together, you have raised £154,569. All the money raised will be used to help people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) to live healthier and happier lives. Without our incredible fundraisers, our services wouldn’t be available to provide the support that so many people need. London Marathon 2021 - MS UK - Jon Dadds-29.png

If you’re feeling inspired by the marathon fever, why not run it yourself? It’s an incredible opportunity to complete this iconic event in London, or you can even do it virtually from a location of your choice! The ballot is open from 04-08 October or if you’ve missed the ballot, we still have spaces which are going fast. You can apply here and join #TeamPurple.

Why run for MS-UK?

As an independent charity, MS-UK relies on donations and fundraising events to provide the helpline, counselling, magazine and online activities. The MS-UK Counselling service is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for people living with MS to discuss their feelings in a safe space, with a counsellor who is specially trained to understand MS. It is the only specialist service in the UK and completely relies on donations and fundraising to fund it.

Not only will you be supporting the existing services MS-UK provides, by running and fundraising for us, you will be helping to shape the future of the charity. You will have support from us every step of your marathon journey, with our Fundraising team being there to answer any questions you have, inspire you with bonus fundraising ideas, along with regular updates to see you through up until the big day!

On marathon day, #TeamPurple are out in full force to cheer you on along the scenic route through London’s landmarks and you’ll be greeted with a post-race reception, which offers massage, food and a big well done!
