Virgin Money London Marathon
We’re joining forces with Alzheimer’s Society for a special one-year campaign as Charity of the Year for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon
Many were running for causes close to their hearts. Others wanted to win it. For me, it carried slightly more significance. For thirty-six years earlier, my father, along with his friend John Disley, dreamt up and organised the first ever London Marathon.
On Sunday 23 April 2017 Siobhann took to the streets of London to run the London Marathon for Alzheimer’s Research UK, raising over £6,500. All the way round, she held onto a treasured photo of her parents.
Last spring, Michelle White pulled on her trainers, donned her running vest and took on the London Marathon. She raised an incredible sum of over £4,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK, having seen the devastating impact of dementia in her family. Despite the pain and exhaustion, she’s signed up to do it again in 2017. We found out why…
We asked top running coach and expert Martin Yelling to host a Marathon Q&A with our #TeamARUK runners.
We’ve some of our top photographs from yesterday’s Virgin Money London Marathon, with all of our heroes from TEAM ARUK (our 64 runners taking part) and the army of cheer squad members to help them along the way.
We’ve a good luck message for our fantastic Alzheimer’s Research UK runners at the Virgin Money London Marathon runners on 13 April 2014.
