Who to run for?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I've stupidly put my name down to run the London Marathon 2006. A stupid moment my knees may live to regret. Mrs 3v is trying to get me to run in aid of dyslexic one legged cats but I'd prefer to run for a proper charadee.

    Anyone know of any mil associated charities with spaces for runners?

    If nobody else takes you up on that kind offer plse think about running for Combat Stress cf www.combatstress.org.u...efault.asp

    Their fundraising department Rosie Gibbons would be very glad to hear from you and to send you a pack.

    ( BTW oppo, I suspect you've applied for a place - you won't hear until December whether you have actually GOT one, if my experience is anything to go by)

    London is a great,GREAT day - put me down for a florin a mile, whoever you race for !

  3. Cheers Le Chevre. I have indeed applied direct but have been advised that getting onto a charity might increase my chances, even if I do get my own place I'll run for someone!
     
  4. I too have applied ( 3rd time lucky )

    If I was lucky I would consider running for an earstwhile cause
     
  5. If you are still looking i would suggest the cot death foundation
