Congratulations to all the MS Superstars who took on the London Marathon!

Could you join them?

Since the first London Marathon in 1981, runners have raised hundreds of millions for charity, making it the largest annual one-day fundraising event in the world!

Join the MS Superstars team today to help improve awareness of MS and find life-altering treatment and care.

1. Apply for one of our guaranteed charity places in the London Marathon 2018.

We will be selecting our team based on the strength of the application so please be as detailed as possible.

2. Apply for an ‘own place’ in the London Marathon 2018 public ballot.

The public ballot will open on Monday May 1st – Friday May 4th If you are successful in securing one of these places you can still choose to run for the MS Society but without the pressure of a fundraising target.

As an MS Superstar runner you’ll receive VIP treatment from now until race day including an exclusive training day and post-race reception! 

If you have any queries please contact us on 0300 500 8084 or at
