This July we are taking away the excuses and asking you to complete Marathon in a Month!

You can walk, run or jog it, at your own speed and in your own time, but the main thing is you CAN do it, you CAN complete a marathon! It can be over a few hours, days or weeks - you’re in control. Whether it’s in your local park, on the way to work, at home or abroad, this is at your speed, your way, your Marathon in a Month. Last year over 600 people took on the challenge, why not join the team?
