I don't want to run, but I want to show my support for Team Young Epilepsy

Supporters are HUGELY important to the success of any long distance run. We really value people that have taken the time to come and cheer on our runners as it is the best way to help keep them motivated. It can be a lonely few hours out on the course so a familiar face, voice, t-shirt or logo with some cheering can make a huge difference. Bring family, bring friends and make it a day for all to enjoy!
