Justine Prior

"I cannot begin to describe what an amazing experience running the London marathon is. The support on the day is like nothing I have ever experienced before. I loved running for HEART UK who were incredibly supportive throughout the entire experience and seeing their smiling faces on the day was great. I would love to do it all again".


Alex Hughes

"Running the London Marathon was truly one of the most incredible things I've ever done, and doing it knowing that it's raising money for a great cause makes it even better! I'm so grateful to the team at HEART UK for this amazing opportunity, and to be able to do something to help your work. Thanks to all the team for the support and encouragement you've given us along the way!"

Margaret Day

"Thanks Christina, the smiles and encouragement from you all at the cheerpoint were just what I needed after an already epic few miles (hence the bandaged right hand!).  What can I say except that I was proud to shed real blood, sweat and tears for a terrific smaller charity who can have a significant impact in improving long term health.  Thank you!"

Kathryn Scott 

‘"Thank you Heart UK for the opportunity to run the 2021 London Marathon. Future runners will be lucky to be supported by a very friendly and approachable team. I benefitted from the organised events such as the Q&A with running experts and helpful reminders for broader London marathon events and tasks. I would highly recommend this great charity to other runners"

Stephanie  Bone

“Wow, London you were amazing and did not disappoint. I have absolutely loved running for Heart UK, the support has been truly amazing, from the fund raising, to training tips and advice. I would certainly do it all again.”
