Our fundraising team are here to support you
Whatever your running experience, training for the marathon is a big challenge. Our fundraising team will provide expert training plans and dedicated support while you take on one of the world's most iconic races. If you get a place we'll provide you with our fundraising pack to get you started, an Epilepsy Society t-shirt and a vest to train and run in.
Over a third of people with epilepsy have seizures that can not be controlled by anti-epileptic drugs
We believe that research offers the best hope of being able to identify the right treatment for people with epilepsy from the outset. Your fundraising helps us to make strides forward with our epilepsy research, find the causes of epilepsy and to improve the treatment of the condition.
Our runners have dedicated days, weeks and months to train and fundraise for the epic 26.2 mile challenge!
Liz Kemsley and her 81 year-old mother ran the London Marathon to raise awareness and money for epilepsy. In this blog Liz discusses why she took on the marathon, her struggles with training and her amazing fundraising efforts.
