The Virgin London Marathon and running for Headway East Northants 

 

 

If you are interested in running in next year's Virgin London Marathon and helping raise funds for Headway East Northants, then we'd love to hear from you. 

 

Not only will you be fulfilling an incredible personal challenge, but you'll also be helping raise funds for our charity to empower and enrich the lives of our clients, as well as providing invaluable support and respite to their families. 

 

 

        

 

 

The Virgin London Marathon is a truly special event, and from the moment a runner secures a place, we'll be there for them every step of the way, keeping in touch regularly to ensure that they are confident and well-supported. 

 

The quotes below from our runners say it all, we think!

 

"I want to send huge thanks to everyone at Headway East Northants for the very special 'good luck' card. I felt quite emotional when reading it, and would love you to convey my thanks to everyone there. It will definitely help me with my last bits of training, and even more so on the day when I'll have time to reflect on waht I am doing, and why.  Thank you for your continued support, and to everyone at Headway for being so kind."

 

Suzie Watts, 2018 Marathon runner, who later described her experience with the Marathon as "life-changing".

 

 

"Thank you very much fo the Team UPN Certificate that arrived the other day! It is taking pride of place on my office wall! It was great to be involved in Team HEN, the best marathon build-up and experience yet!"

 

Andrew Spencer, UPN Director and Marathon runner
