The speeches and the athletes who we met were all truly inspirational." Amber Snell (London Marathon runner 2016)
“I have been most impressed by SportsAid, both the staff and the charity, and will be advocating it in the future. I attended the post-race reception and it was great to have somewhere to go after the race! It was nice to see other people and to wash, eat and have a massage, so thank you for organising that!” Paul Walker (London Marathon runner 2015)

I just wanted to say thank you very much to you and the SportsAid team for your amazing support over my whole marathon experience. It was great to come along to the SportsAid celebratory party afterwards to get a massage, meet you and chat with your athlete Emma and your Chairman Chris. I have really enjoyed my London marathon experience and fundraising for SportsAid!
