The marathon team have been training for six months and are so excited to not only be running in such a prestigious event, but also supporting MK Snap.

It is estimated that there are 4,607 people aged over 18 and living with a learning disability in Milton Keynes.

This year, MK Snap marks its 25th year of providing life changing opportunities for people with disabilities in our community.

“It has been a dream of mine to run London since I was very little and I’m honoured to be running for the amazing charity MK Snap,” said runner Bethan Burchmore.

Two directors from The Red Thread partnership will also be running.

Adrian Spurrell said: “What struck us most when we first walked into MK Snap was the sense of joy that it radiates. It truly is an inspirational place that helps its learners safely challenge themselves and grow”.
