Those who missed out on London Marathon places can run for Primrose instead

Ross Crawford 18th Feb, 2021

RUNNERS who missed out on London Marathon ballot places or would like to take part can run for Primrose Hospice.

The hospice has a number of places available for people who would like to run the 26.2 miles either at the event in London or ‘virtually’ around their hometown on Sunday, October 3.

If you choose to run for Primrose Hospice you will be raising money for hospice care, supporting those living with a life-limiting illness and their families across north east Worcestershire.

“This is your chance to take part in an iconic event and raise money to ensure vulnerable people in your community get the support they need at this critical time,” said Sally Insley, Primrose’s fundraising manager.

“This year, the organisers are hoping to host the world’s largest marathon with 100,000 people taking part across the world.

“This is your opportunity to not only make history but help us in supporting the local community.”
