A Marathon Challenge

News and Blog

St Catherine’s is looking for runners to fill its last few remaining places for this year’s London Marathon, on Sunday 23 April. 

The iconic 26.2 mile race is the world’s most popular marathon, and the perfect challenge to kick-start a fit and fearless 2023.  

We understand the training and commitment that is required for a marathon and, whether a novice or a seasoned runner, we support each of our runners every step of the way. Support for our  London Marathon team includes group training sessions, hints and tips sessions lead by running specialists, a personalised St Catherine’s running vest, transport to the marathon and a post-race celebration.  

Cat Ferrer-Jempson, Events Co-ordinator says: “This year St Catherine’s is marking its 40th anniversary since it first began providing vital end of life and palliative care for the local community. We would absolutely love for this year’s London Marathon team to be bigger and better than ever. We are calling on local runners to take up our last remaining places and tick this incredible race off their bucket list and raise money for a tremendous local charity.” 

Registration for the event costs £50 and runners are required to fundraise £2,250 with plenty of support from the charity along the way.
