Were you one of the lucky ones who bagged a place in the 2021 London Marathon ballot? Or are you on the hunt for a charity space? Whether you’re looking to tackle the official route or to take on the virtual event, why not join #TeamERUK and turn your marathon experience into more than just a race?!

You’ll join runners like James, who’s taking on the race to raise awareness and funds for research into epilepsy, at a time when fundraising income has been hit hard by the pandemic.

This is a cause very close to my heart, and my brain really I suppose! I am ‘fortunate’ enough to have a form of epilepsy that can be managed, but for many thousands of people in the UK the condition has a huge impact on their daily life. Epilepsy Research UK are trying their very best to change this, but they need our help.


As part of our London Marathon team, you’ll receive:

• a stylish high-quality Epilepsy Research UK running top
• regular support and advice from our dedicated fundraising team
• lively cheer points along the course
• and a post-race party to celebrate with your family and friends


Then the Brighton Marathon Festival might be the event for you – the ballot opens 12th February and Epilepsy Research UK has places in this race too! With a stunning backdrop of the sea in one of the country’s most vibrant cities, the race is renowned for its buzzing atmosphere.

If ever there was a time to support life changing, life saving research into epilepsy, it’s now.

Whichever running event takes your fancy, we’d love to have you as part of #TeamERUK! Get in touch today and let’s get you running for research once more.
