Meningitis Research Foundation

Run the TCS London Marathon for #TeamMRF and help to defeat Meningitis

Whether you have personal experience of this devastating disease, you’re in search of a new PB or the 26.2-mile event is on your bucket list, running the TCS London Marathon for Meningitis Research Foundation will ensure you’re supported every step of the way.

The atmosphere and palpable buzz of the TCS London Marathon is incredibly special and we go the extra mile to make your experience one to remember. From the moment you sign up to run for #TeamMRF, we’ll be on hand with fundraising tips, advice and resources from your dedicated charity fundraiser and online support group. On Event Day, we’ll also be there to cheer you on around the course and provide a post-event reception where you can relax with your family and fellow #TeamMRF runners.

By joining our team, you’ll help us to achieve our goal of defeating meningitis wherever it exists. Your contribution will enable us to fund vital research into the disease, provide life-saving awareness information and support those who have lost a loved one or are coping with the impact of this disease.

All Team MRF runners can expect to receive:

  • a personalised running vest
  • a fundraising pack
  • one-to-one fundraising support from your dedicated charity contact
  • regular updates to keep you up to date with everything you need to know
  • support on the day from our charity cheer point and complimentary prosecco and a massage at our post-event reception
  • training and support webinars throughout the year
  • access to our TCS London Marathon Facebook group, so you can get to know and support your fellow runners and celebrate each other’s training and fundraising achievements!

Caroline, who previously conquered the London Marathon for Team MRF, said: “I had a fantastic experience running as part of Team MRF – there is such a nice community feel which really helps when you need that extra bit of motivation!”

About Meningitis Research Foundation

Meningitis and septicaemia are diseases that affect people around the world, and they can kill within hours. Many of those who survive are left with life-changing disability and after-effects. Globally, the diseases are estimated to be the second-leading cause of death from an infectious disease in children under the age of five – higher than malaria, tetanus, measles and AIDS combined.

Meningitis Research Foundation is a leading UK, Irish and international charity that brings together people and expertise to defeat meningitis and septicaemia wherever it exists.

Our vision is of a world free from meningitis and septicaemia. A world where effective vaccinations can protect everyone. A world where people who do get the diseases get the most effective diagnoses and treatments possible. A world where people affected, and their families, receive the best support and information.
