Why You've Chosen Us

We really value our supporters and know how much the Virgin London Marathon 2018 is a truly great event!

As the big day is second to none - with millions of people including our staff and gym members loudly cheering you on at our meet point - find out why our runners have chosen to sign up with us for the Virgin London Marathon below: 

I chose Ability Bow as it is local and provides a fantastic service to disabled patients and those with long term conditions who live in Tower Hamlets at a hugely discounted rate. I wanted to contribute something back to the borough I work in. The support from your team was amazing and all the questions that I needed answering were. I wish my time was a bit faster but i could not account for cramp, so I am hoping to have a successful application and run for Ability Bow again next year! The entire experience was amazing, the organisation smooth and I saw London from a different perspective. The bands, crowd, noise got me through. I recommend this to everyone. The pain is worth it. Roll on next year! "
