Cameras are watching, thousands line the streets to cheer you home and you’re doing it all for a cause that matters.

Apply to join the Action for M.E. London Marathon 2017 team and you can help end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by people with M.E.

Each of our runners will receive:

  • a free Action for M.E. running vest
  • tips and advice from Olympian and Action for M.E. Ambassador Anna Hemmings
  • the chance to be featured in our membership magazine InterAction
  • the dedicated support of our fundraising team

You can apply for a place in our 2017 London Marathon team by downloading a registration form, filling it out and emailing it to our fundraising team. You can also apply by calling us on 0117 937 6626.

To make a difference we need your help

M.E. can strike anyone, at any time and at any age.

It's not acceptable that people with M.E. are left ignored and neglected. It's not acceptable that people lie forgotten about in darkened rooms for months, years and even decades. It's also not acceptable that people with M.E. are six times more likely to commit suicide than those without it.

With your help, we can and will end the ignorance, injustice and neglect experienced by people with M.E. and ensure that people have the care and support they need.

Join us in London

You can apply for a place on the Action for M.E. 2017 London Marathon team by downloading a registration form and returning it to the fundraising team by email. You can also apply by calling 0117 937 6626.

The deadline for entry is 1 September 2016. Due to the popularity of the London marathon we may not be able to offer a place to everybody who applies. After the deadline we’ll choose our team and let applicants know whether they've been successful by the end of September.

Run of a lifetime!

 The following quote comes from one of our 2016 London Marathon runners Andy Leamon (pictured):

“Running through the streets of London was amazing, breath taking, and the run of a life-time!

Knowing how hard I trained and worked, knowing what I was running for, who I was running for was making me so emotional at the start line it gave me that extra belief and determination to complete the London Marathon without stopping!

Crossing the Finish Line was an unbelievable feeling. I broke down and cried my heart out knowing I had achieved something amazing and running for a worthy cause."
