Become a DLS Runner at London Marathon 2014

In the running?

Have you secured your place at the London Marathon 2014 yet? If not, we have good news for you.  We, the Disability Law Service, still have a few guaranteed spaces available, but you have to be fast to register your name to be in the running.

Running the London Marathon is a truly life changing event.

Not only because of the tremendous personal achievement, but also for the experience; the electric atmosphere, the support from your fellow runners, and the tens of thousands of people who cheer you home. It is an enormous challenge, and whatever your age or fitness thousands before have proved that with motivation and adequate preparation, it can be done!

In order to become one of the Disability Law Service (DLS) Runners, simply complete the registration form pledging to raise a minimum £1,750 for DLS and return it to DLS at the address given below. We will confirm whether a place is still available and send you instructions to set up your personalised donations page on DLS’s Just Giving website page. You will need to deposit a £100 registration fee to secure your place. We will confirm your place is secured once we have received your registration fee. Sorry, but we can only confirm your place on a first come first registered basis only as we only have a limited number of places. The average Golden Bond runner in 2012 raised £2,500.

Please note that the £100 registration fee is non-refundable and will count towards your overall fundraising target. Collecting donations through www.justgiving.com is simple, easy and safe as it allows you to electronically collect payments and send out thank you messages via email to your sponsors.

Why not make it a team effort and ask your friends and colleagues to join you in the running.  Some runners have got their employers to match donated funds to reach their target. You could make it competitive to see who has the best time or raises the highest amount of money for DLS. There will be prizes for both categories at a reception soon after the Marathon 2014.

In return we will support you every step of the way between now and the Marathon and beyond.

Each year the Disability Law Service provides thousands of disabled people with free legal advice and information via our advice line. We also provide a vital casework service that has helped to achieve rulings that have benefited the lives of all disabled people. With the forthcoming changes in benefits structure, the demand for our unique service has increased even further.

In order to meet this demand, we need to continuously raise funds from individuals.

Running the marathon for a charity adds a clear, wider sense of purpose to the event; knowing the funds you have raised will be spent on a much needed and valued service. We look forward to receiving your registration form.
