All team members will receive a free running vest, a fundraising pack, support and advice from our fundraising team and will also have the support of their fellow team members through virtual meetups and social media.

You're also welcome to put your name down for our 2018 team and we'll get back in touch as soon as we can confirm we have a place for you.

What is M.E.?

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) is a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems.

People with M.E. experience severe, persistent fatigue associated with post-exertional malaise, the body’s inability to recover after expending even small amounts of energy, leading to a flare-up in symptoms. For a quarter of people, their symptoms are so severe they leave them house or bedbound sometimes for years at a time.

As of yet there is no cure for M.E. and little is known about the causes or underlying biology of this condition.
