SENSE, the national deaf-blind charity, is offering budding athletes from Dorset the opportunity to take the challenge of a lifetime and run this year’s London Marathon.

The charity that supports and campaigns for people who are both deaf and blind across the South West, has guaranteed places for the classic race in April.

Tara Hamdi from Sense, said: “The London Marathon is one of the world’s greatest, but getting a place can be difficult, so Sense wants to give local runners the chance to run for a cause close to home.”
