London Marathon 2015 call out

There are still a limited number of places available on the Ability Bow team for April 2015 so please feel free to forward this message or pass the news on to anyone you think may be interested. There’s roughly four months between now and Race Day – plenty of people have achieved a Marathon in less time.

If you know of other runners or anyone who has ever indicated they might like to try the Marathon, now is the time to pass the word on. By raising funds for Ability Bow runners will be helping people change their lives through taking part in supported exercise.
