Download marathon application form

DR UK is now recruiting runners for the London Marathon on Sunday 2 October.

Are you eager to make a difference? Ready to make a change for disabled people across the UK?

We are devoted to campaigning to strengthen and protect disabled people’s rights and you can help us to raise money to support the work we do. The money that you raise goes straight back into the work the charity does in supporting some of the most disadvantaged people in society. We receive no government funding for our core work so the money raised really does make a difference!

Join #teamDRUK and apply to run the London Marathon! By joining us you will receive:

  • DR UK running vest 
  • Six months subscription to Runner’s World magazine  
  • Regular check-ins for general encouragement and fundraising tips 
  • E-news and other DR UK updates
  • Support with fundraising activities e.g. flyers about our work, donation collection boxes
  • Linked via email to other DR UK runners - where people wish this
