Join our MS Superstars team and take on the London Marathon!

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 our MS Superstars team today to help improve awareness of MS and fund life-changing treatment and care.

1. Run with your own place

If you've secured a place directly with the London Marathon organisers, we'd love to hear from you.

As an own place runner, there's no pressure to hit a fundraising target and you'll receive all the same support as our charity place runners.

>> Register as an 'own place' runner


2. Join our charity place waiting list

Although we've now filled all of our guaranteed charity places we'd definitely encourage you to join our waiting list. We'll be in touch if a place becomes available.

>> Apply for our waiting list


All our MS Superstar runners get VIP treatment from now until race day, including:

  • an exclusive training day
  • a fab post-race reception

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

Let's stop MS together.

    As an MS Superstar, we'll be with you every step of the way.

    If you're lucky enough to get a place through the ballot, or one of our guaranteed places, we'll provide you with:

    • a post-race reception 500m from the finish line with free professional massages and refreshments.
    • training and fundraising advice from our team of expert fundraisers.
    • a professional MS Society running vest.
    • four of the loudest, brightest and most enthusiastic cheering points around the course.
    • A chance to meet the team and get expert advice at our exclusive training day.
    • membership of a  Facebook group to share tips, stories and advice with fellow MS Superstars.
    • cheering packs filled with goodies for your friends and family.

    The London Marathon public ballot has now closed - results will be announced in early October. (Date TBC)

    If you're lucky enough to secure a place with the event organisers please let us know. 

    We’d still love to have you on the team and you’ll have all the same support but without the pressure of a minimum sponsorship.

    If you have any questions please contact the team on 0300 500 8084 or by emailing
