Become an epilepsy hero with your own place

If you are successful in gaining your own ballot or 'good for age' place we would love you to join Lily and our amazing team of Epilepsy Society runners.

Lily's sister Amelia Roberts (pictured on the left of the picture) was just 21 when she tragically died from a seizure. 

"It means so much to me to be running the London Marathon in memory of my darling sister Amelia...I’m really not a runner, so I’m actually dreading doing it but if I know there is a team of us all running for this incredible charity then we can get through it together." - Lily, Amelia's sister (pictured centre with Amelia)
