Team ME Engineers running for Guts UK

Join our proud & bold Gut Army in the New Year and help to change the lives of people affected by digestive conditions.

Guts UK have just 7 places remaining in the Vitality Big Half Marathon, taking place on 1st March 2020. Starting at Tower Bridge and following much of the world-famous London Marathon route in reverse, you’ll follow in the footsteps of the world’s best runners, taking in some spectacular views as you cross the river and finishing by the Cutty Sark. It is then topped off with a festival in Greenwich Park to end the event.

In 2019, Team Guts UK came and conquered, and in the process, raised an enormous £7,613.00!

“Running the Big Half for Guts UK was both emotional and inspiring. My best friend, Jessica, has suffered and still suffers from various types of gut and pancreas problems. To have completed 13.1 miles, crossing the finish line hand in hand with Jessica was something truly special and a memory we will be able to cherish forever” – Kristina, who ran the Big Half with her best friend Jessica.

Together we can do more. Be a part of Team Guts UK this year as we strive for a world where digestive diseases are better understood, better treated and everyone who lives with one gets the support they need.
