This is a very special year to be running for bccs as it sees us celebrating our 35th anniversary and we are welcoming our Marathon Runners to a very special group of challengers called 'Team 35' who will be doing something awesome for us this year.
We are looking forward to tracking our runners' training progress and of course, to following them on the day; we think that this experience will be an unforgettable one for them and wish them good luck with their training.
If you would like to support their fundraising, please click on their link above, pledge an amount and send them your message of support.
If you are lucky enough to have secured a place through the race organisers’ ballot, we’d love you to join our special Team 35. As we only have a limited number of guaranteed places, we really appreciate any sponsorship money raised by people who have already secured their own places.
For further information, please email us or call us on 01268 784544.
Our previous Marathon runners are our best ambassadors - here's what they have to say about being part of the event for bccs:
The London Marathon was one of the best days of my life; 26.2 miles of deafening support from the crowd as you pass Cutty Sark, Tower Bridge and at last, Buckingham Palace, is something I’ll never forget.
It was an honour to do my bit for a charity like 'bccs' and help them continue to provide such amazing support to a large number of children in the local community.
Trust me, being part of the amazing atmosphere on the streets of London for that day makes all those training runs in the cold worthwhile.
I would strongly urge anyone even considering running the London Marathon to go for it. Just make sure you’ve got yourself some comfortable trainers and your name on your bright yellow 'bccs' vest for the big day; the crowd will do the rest of the work for you!
