Every step you take will help working animals in the marathon journeys they often complete every day of their lives.

As a member of the SPANA team, we will support you every step of the way. We’ll provide you with hints and tips on your fundraising, sponsorship forms, training advice and your very own SPANA running vest or T-shirt to wear with pride on the day.
