The UK's most accessible marathon!                    

This July, My MS Marathon is back and we’re challenging you to take on your own marathon to raise money for MS-UK’s Counselling Service. Wherever you are across the country we’re asking you to join our #TeamPurple family and take on your own kind of marathon using the number 26 through time or distance, and do it your way for MS-UK. So, whether you knit, game, bake, dance, hop, skip, jump, walk, wheel or run do it your way for MS-UK! 

Due to the recent high demand for our counselling service, we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily stop taking referrals. This has been a very difficult decision to make, and we are doing our best to resume normal service as soon as possible. Funding a vital service such as this is challenging and funding is urgently needed in order to sustain the service. By taking part in My MS Marathon you will be helping MS-UK continue providing this much-needed service.
