Want to know what it feels like to run the London Marathon?

We’re standing on Royal Horseguards parade and I can’t believe I’ve just completed 26.2miles for The National Autistic Society, I feel absolutely awesome! – runner 2016

I have high functioning Asperger’s syndrome and I’m lucky enough to be able to have a job, to live in my own place, have a great family that supports me but a lot of kids aren’t as lucky as I was so I want to pay it forward and help them – Benjamin

The National Autistic Society have been absolutely fantastic right from the start – runner 2016

Unfortunately we are no longer accepting gold bond charity spot applications as the process is now closed. An overwhelming amount of people wanted to run for us – thank you all for sending in your applications. 

To apply for the Virgin Money London Marathon 2018 team we will re-open again in May 2017.
