Santa Run, Battersea Park - London 3rd December 2016

Eye Dystonia (blepharospasm) Research Fundraising Event 


We’ve teamed up with eye-health charity Fight for Sight to fund a unique research project into eye dystonia (also known as blepharospasm). Fight for Sight have offered to ‘match fund’ half of the £15,000 research pot, which means that in effect, everything you raise could be doubled! So we need to make a big effort to raise as much as we can.

Whether you've been naughty or nice we need runners for the upcoming London Santa Run in Battersea Park to help us raise an extra £2,500 to take us over the fundraising finish line!

If you’d like to get involved with this event in aid of eye dystonia research. Please get in touch with the fundraising team by emailing us at

You can also sign up to this event by following the link below – but don’t forget to let us know so we can help you fundraise! And send you some great Dystonia Society goodies!

*If you can't make it to the event but would still like to help fund the research - don't worry, you still can by sending a donation to our office address, stating clearly that you'd like to help fund this project.

London Marathon 2017

Do you want to be part of one of the world's greatest marathons next year? Then look no further...

We currently have three runners taking on the 26.2 mile London Marathon 2017 in April and we need two more runners raring to come and join Team Dystonia. 

The London Marathon has an absolutely amazing atmosphere that really needs to be experienced in person.  

If you think you've got what it takes and can reach a minimum sponsorship target of £2,600 then what are you waiting for? Get in touch with The Dystonia Society Fundraising Team and snap up a place.


London Super Nova 5K Run - Saturday 1st April 2017


Get the whole family involved with this fantastic fluorescent 5K in the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. What’s this though - it takes place when it’s dark!?

Yep that’s right, and it really makes this a stellar event! So dig out your most reflective clothing and grab everything and anything that glows or flashes and get ready to shine and gleam for The Dystonia Society.

There’s no stress, no time limits - just friends and family spending an evening together doing something a little different but a lot of fun! Fancy dress is a big part of this event and brilliantly brightens up the night.


Prague Marathon Weekend - 6th/7th May 2017 


When you run the Volkswagen Prague Marathon, you are running through the centuries in a city that was built when Emperors chose to make it the capital of Europe. Awe-inspiring views throughout the race course have made this marathon a popular running holiday in the Czech Republic. Start your journey in the Old Town Square, leaving behind the famous Astronomical Clock and wander through the ancient streets down to the Vltava River, where you’ll enjoy a splendid view of Prague Castle while crossing the Charles Bridge – one of the most magnificent Gothic bridges in the world. Well-preserved across ages, Prague’s renowned architectural beauty offers a spectacular glimpse into history and unforgettable future memories!


Edinburgh Marathon Festival - 27th/28th May 2017


Voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runner’s World in 2008 - the excellent Edinburgh Marathon Festival is a terrific race series to achieve those PBs. Enjoy a fantastic all-encompassing route which takes in some of Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks as well as offering picturesque views along the East Lothian coastline.

If you're not quite ready for the full marathon just yet, there’s also the half-marathon, 10k, and 5k to sign up to!

Plus the festival has a number of great races for juniors which are a fantastic way to get children active and encourage them to get involved in running.
