- Your own personalised technical running top
- A huge welcome at our post-race reception; drinks, snacks and a sports massage all await you near the finish line (friends and family are also welcome)
- Training and fundraising support and materials
- A dedicated Events Fundraiser to help you every step of the way
Why run with Team Meningitis Now?
“I’d 100% recommend this run over other smaller runs I’ve done. The amount of support was incredible! At every part of the run there were people cheering you on. Having that support there I forgot I was running at times. The support just carries you to the finish line and when you see the sea you know you’re nearly there. For people who think they can’t do it, you can. For people that think you need to be able to run that distance before the day, you don’t”.
Becky, 2017 Meningitis Now runner
