"My first marathon, and I imagine this will be a hard one to beat. Huge fun community with all the runners and also a great crowd all along the streets. Well organised and a free alcohol free beer at the end!" - Pete Ashlie, London
"The BM is simply the best in my opinion. Great organization, a nice flat route, friendly runners and wonderful fans that line the streets and root you on to the finish. I will never forget crossing under the Brandenburg gate and hearing the roar of the crowd." - guerofantastico, TripAdvisor

Today multiple sclerosis is relentless, painful and exhausting. But tomorrow we believe can change that. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. Until then, we're working to make sure no one has to face MS alone. Everything we do is guided by people with MS. Because together, we're stronger.
Last year, we reached thousands of people with help and support through our MS Helpline and grants. We successfully campaigned on the issues that matter most to our community. And we continued to invest in ground-breaking research to stop MS in its tracks.
We couldn’t do this without the supporter of thousands of fundraisers like you. £10 of funds you raise could help us support someone calling the MS helpline, or £100 could pay for half an hour of MRI use, so researchers can monitor the success of clinical trials and understand MS in more detail.
