Home-Start Team Marathon
Take part in our new Home-Start ‘Team’ Marathon event. Run as part of a team and complete a collaborative marathon during the month of October!
Have you ever watched the London Marathon, the Olympic Games or any other endurance race and thought “Gosh, I’d like to do that!”? It’s quite a challenge and not everyone’s cup of tea.
But if you would consider taking part in a team-effort marathon, maybe we can help.
In the Home-Start Marathon teams run collaboratively, with each member contributing to the total distance. That said, if you fancy giving the full marathon (or half marathon) a go, we’ll definitely be cheering you on! You can choose your own course – maybe a local park, or along your favourite footpath. Please do get in touch if you’d like some help in choosing where to run. You can run with your team, or you can run alone, as long as you keep track of your distance, so you know when your team has completed the 26 miles!
Teams will have the option to receive a personalised fundraising page, or a traditional sponsorship form if they’d prefer, a link to a tracking sheet for teams to upload their completed distances, and optional membership of a Facebook group, where teams can share their experience and support each other.
Schools and clubs who sign up will receive back 50% of their sponsorship, just like they do in our annual Aquathon. And, because the distance is shared by the team, even the very smallest member of a school or club can do their bit to raise money for their cause.
Why not get inspired by the London Marathon, which is on the 3rd of October this year? Seize the moment, and run for charity.
Sign up a team. Enjoy running for fun. And remember: every step counts.
