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

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

We'll select our team based on what you tell us in your application, so please be as detailed as possible.

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

The public ballot has now closed and results will be announced in early October

If you secure your own place you can run for us without 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.
