Didn't get a London Marathon ballot place? Run for us!

October 03, 2018

Do you know anyone interested in taking on the world famous London Marathon next April? The results of the ballot for own places is announced this week - if they weren't selected, we'd love to have them on our Action for M.E. team!

Each year a team of courageous, dedicated fundraisers take part to raise funds to support our vital work. Action for M.E.'s team this year raised more than £30,000 - and now we’re looking for runners to join us for 2019.

Anyone interested in running the marathon for Action for M.E. should apply via EventBrite before our deadline on Saturday 20 October. We’ll be choosing our team after this date, and letting people know by late October if we’re able to offer them a place. Sadly, because of the popularity of the London marathon we’re not able to offer a place to everyone who applies.

Runners are asked to pay a registration fee of £100 and aim to raise a minimum of £1,600 in exchange for a place. We’re proud to support each and every one of our event fundraisers - you’ll receive a free Action for M.E. running vest, a runners fundraising pack and the full support of our dedicated fundraising and communications teams to help you share your story and hit your fundraising target. We look forward to hearing from you!
