Runners wishing to be part of Meningitis Now’s team at this year’s Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon need to get their skates on to secure one of our guaranteed places.

On October 9 over 16,000 participants will gather in Hyde Park to set their pace through Central London.

Our places in the 13.1 mile route are running out fast.

Those wanting to join in the fun have until the end of April to sign up.

By running for us you’ll be helping to fight meningitis with every stride.

It will move us one step closer to our vision of a future where no one in the UK dies from meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

Sadly, meningitis and septicaemia continue to affect thousands of people in the UK and kill more under-fives than any other infectious disease.

Help us fight back on all fronts by funding research to eradicate the disease, raising awareness and supporting survivors.
