Epilepsy Ireland Volunteers after completing a marathon

Marathons are a fantastic way to support our work and we have been privileged to have hundreds of people represent Epilepsy Ireland in marathons right across the globe. Whether you come in first or last, you are a champion in our eyes if you decide to take on the ultimate endurance test in our name!

Marathons are now synonymous with the charity sector, with the majority of people taking part running in support of an organisation close to their heart. We hope to be that charity and we'll be on hand to provide you with all you need if you're thinking about taking on this epic challenge! If you're interested in taking part in a marathon or a challenge based event for Epilepsy Ireland, we have linked to **some** upcoming events in 2024 below where you can further details on how to sign up:
