About Meningitis Now's charity places
Our charity places are limited. Each year we receive many more applications than places available owing to the huge interest in the event.
Places are awarded based on the strength of applications, so we ask applicants to consider and explain in detail the motivation to run for Meningitis Now and plans to reach the £2,000 fundraising target.
If you would like more information about the event before you apply please register your interest and a member of the Events team will contact you.
Have you received your ballot place for 2020?
If you are one of the lucky few to secure your own place, we would love for you to run for Meningitis Now. Unlike our charity place runners, we won’t ask you to make a fundraising pledge, but we will offer the same fundraising support and team benefits listed below. Please complete the following form and a member of the team will give you a call and pop a fundraising pack in the post. We look forward to welcoming you to #TeamTangerine.
Being a part of Team Meningitis Now as a charity place runner or ballot place runner means that you will receive:
- Your own personalised technical running top
- A huge welcome at our post-race reception; drinks, snacks, a shower and 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
