We're delighted to have been allocated a small number of charity places in the Virtual London Marathon in October.
 
We'd love you to be part of our team!
 
This year's London Marathon, on Sunday 3rd October, is going to be an event like no other. For the first time 50,000 people will be running in their own communities on the same day as 50,000 take to the streets of the capital. Definitely one for the record books!
 
Our 'virtual' runners will have 24 hours to complete the iconic 26.2 mile distance, so you can do it in your own way. If marathon running is your thing you can aim to beat a personal best, or plan a route that's personal to you. If you're a novice, you can build in plenty of breaks and enjoy support from family and friends along the way.
 
As a member of our team you'll have access to the London Marathon runners’ app so, even as you run through the lanes of Wiltshire, you'll be able to track your progress on the original route. You'll be able to celebrate as you 'cross Tower Bridge' or 'run down the Mall' - and of course there will be an official medal to show off afterwards. 

Running the Virtual London Marathon for dementia

We're asking every member of our team to commit to raising £300 for Alzheimer's Support. We'll support you with plenty of resources and encouragement and give you an Alzheimer's Support T-shirt for training or to run in on the day.  
 
If you'd like to be part of this amazing event and raise funds for people living with dementia in Wiltshire please contact us to register your interest.
 
We will be back in touch by the end of February at the latest. 
 
I’m not really a runner but impulsively applied for the Virtual London Marathon. There’s a great medal on offer and who doesn’t love a bit of bling? I play flute with a local music group and before Covid struck we regularly entertained at Alzheimer’s Support’s day centres. There is always such a lovely, friendly, happy atmosphere there and I wanted to do what I could do help.
