We have six amazing runners training hard to run an epic 26.2 miles in this year's marathon which is now taking place on Sunday 3rd October. They have put in so many hours during lockdowns and restrictions, coping with the event being postponed not just once but twice due to the pandemic.   

It's a huge commitment in normal circumstances but they have faced months of training without knowing if or when the big day will happen.They need your encouragement now more than ever to help them get to the finish line.

It is such a difficult time for many charities and we are really truly grateful for their amazing efforts in extraordinary circumstances raising funds to support children and adults with dyslexia.  

If you could donate a few pounds to spur them on please click on their names below to find our more about their marathon stories.
