Running for the pets

editorial image

Many runners recently found out whether they have been lucky enough to secure a ballot place in the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon.

If anyone was unsuccessful, but still keen to participate and put their training to good use, pet charity People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) has a limited number of guaranteed golden bond places available.

For anyone interested in running for PDSA, and helping our dedicated vets and nurses treat sick and injured pets, please go to or call 0800 508 8323 to find out more.

For runners who were successful via the ballot system, we would also be delighted for you to join “team PDSA” to help us raise awareness of the vital work our vets and nurses undertake.

Runners completing the marathon for PDSA will be given fantastic support, including an after race reception in London, advice and guidance to help with their fund-raising, and an amazing cheering squad to help them around the 26.2 mile course.

On behalf of poorly pets, thank you.
