Description

Without a doubt the UK's most famous marathon, and the biggest single day fundraising event in the world.

Every year thousands run the iconic route to raise money for good causes, and next year you could be one of them. this is your chance to take part in the massive, televised event alongside celebrities and running legends, and to do so to help raise funds and awareness for a little understood, life stealing Neurological condition affecting approximatly 250,000 men, women and children in the UK.

Unfortunately due to the popularity of the London Marathon we are unable to offer a place to everyone that applies.

Your application does not guarantee you a place.

We will consider you will all other applications after our deadline of 1 September and will then get back in touch. A registration fee of £100 will be due once we have confirmed your place, and is payable in installments.

We ask people to commit to raising a minimum of £1,600 in exchange for a place.

The date of the marathon itself is 22 April 2018

As part of team Action for M.E. you will receive a free running vest, the full support of our fundraising team, tips and advice from Olympian and former Action for M.E. ambassador Anna Hemmings and access to our free fundraising resources.

We look forward to meeting you in London!

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.

You can find out more about M.E. and our work at www.actionforme.org.uk
