“Being part of the APEC marathon team is like being part of a family. They send you personal messages and updates, are helpful and genuine. I’ve run for them two years in a row and loved it! ”


“I have had an absolute blast with training and fundraising. Yes its been tough at times but so wonderful and at time when it got tough (on marathon day) knowing the difference the money was making really did make me dig deep and carry on. “


It was an incredible experience and one I would certainly like to do again

We ask our UK* runners to raise £2000* by the end of May 2019.

*We also require a £100 admin donation upon your offer of a place.
