London Marathon - 4th October 2020

Run for St Wilfrid's!

Take on the iconic London Marathon and do something amazing for your local Hospice!

The Virgin Money London Marathon is the largest annual fundraising event on the planet - runners have now raised more than £1 billion for good causes since the race began in 1981. The course follows an iconic route taking in many of London's landmarks, from the Cutty Sark and the City to St James' Park and The Mall.

We are looking for local heroes to run for St Wilfrid’s Hospice in the 2020 London Marathon and take on this incredible challenge.

Join #teamwilf and every mile you run and every penny you raise will help us continue supporting local patients and their loved ones with first-class end of life care.

With plenty of support from our dedicated team, we’ll make sure you feel as prepared as possible before the big day. As part of #teamwilf you will receive:

  • Full fundraising support
  • A St Wilfrid’s Hospice running vest to wear on the race day
  • Your very own fundraising contact
  • Hints and tips sessions with the Fundraising Team and a professional local running coach
  • Expert diet and training advice
  • A pre-race pasta party with your fellow St Wilfrid’s team members
  • Post-marathon celebration with all of #teamwilf!
