Direct Solutions have a long history of supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre and this is just one of a number of events that we participate in to help them carry on the fantastic work that they do.

Allistair, who is Managing Director of marketing company Direct Solutions in Clacton-on-Sea will be running the London Marathon in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre. Allistair will be looking to match his previous best time of 4 hours and 8 minutes and is well in to his gruelling training schedule with just five weeks to go.

Allistair said, “Direct Solutions have a long history of supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Resource Centre and this is just one of a number of events that we participate in to help them carry on the fantastic work that they do.”

The London Marathon is one of the biggest running events in the world covering a distance of 26 miles and the 31st race will take place on Sunday, 17 April 2011. It is the biggest fundraising event on the planet -- runners have raised over £500 million for good causes since the race began in 1981.

“I did say that last year would be my final year, but here I am in training again! I just hope I can raise lots of money for a fantastic cause -- it makes it all worthwhile.”
