Free run places

Would you like to take up a FREE run place for the Nystagmus Network?

We have places in the London Vitality 10k on Monday 27 May (Bank Holiday Monday) and are about to purchase places in the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 13 October.
Due to the relatively high cost of the places for a small charity like ours, we ask that our runners fulfil the following criteria:
  • you have nystagmus yourself or a close connection to someone who does
  • you have a proven track record as a runner
  • you can commit to raise a minimum of £250 in sponsorship

If you would like to be considered for one of our 2019 run places, or would like to suggest an alternative event to take part in, please do get in touch.

Want to run the New York marathon 2019 for us?

You could combine your place in one of the most prestigious runs in the world with the holiday of a lifetime, next November.
Sadly, the Nystagmus Network is unable to provide any financial support for either your run place or your travel expenses, but, if you can secure sponsorship from, say, an employer to cover those costs, we’ll be right behind you every step of the way to support your fundraising.
You can find out more about the New York Marathon here.  The company organises everything for you and offers a variety of packages. They all include at least an element of travel, whether plane tickets or hotel accommodation in New York.
Please take a look and, if you decide to go ahead, please let us know and we’ll be ready to back you every step of the way.

2 runners wearing Nystagmus Network show their medals after comleting the Royal Parks Half Marathon

Clare did it for nystagmus and for Jessica

Clare ran the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 14 October to raise money for the Nystagmus Network in honour of Jessica, who was born with the condition.

The Royal Parks Half is billed as one of the most picturesque runs in the country, but, sadly, the beautiful autumnal colours were a little washed out by the rain.

Undeterred, Clare has raised almost £900 in sponsorship for the charity and made the whole nystagmus community proud.

After her run she said: “At mile 5 I saw someone with Nystagmus who screamed out and made me so emotional I cried till mile 6!”


You can still sponsor Clare here.
