Take part in the world’s most popular marathon and raise much needed funds for your local hospice.

Would you like to join #TeamStCH for the world’s most popular marathon? 2021 will bring us both the iconic in-person marathon starting out at Blackheath Common, and the popular virtual edition taking place on a 26.2 mile route of your choice.

We understand the training and commitment that goes into running a marathon, and whether you're a novice or a seasoned runner, we're here to support you every step of the way. From securing a place to crossing the finish line, we'll be on hand with the following:

  • A supporter pack including practical training advice and some handy hints to help boost your fundraising
  • Your very own personalised St Catherine’s running vest and branded stash
  • Hints & tips sessions lead by a British Masters Gold Medallist
  • Group training sessions
  • Support from a community of like-minded runners, via the exclusive #TeamStCH Facebook group
