Run your own Marathon at your own pace for Peace Hospice Care.

 

 

If you'd love to do a marathon but didn't think you could, do we have the thing for you! My Peace Marathon is the perfect way you can do your own marathon, your own way, at your own pace…

My Peace Marathon is not just for runners - you can choose to do a Peace Walking or Wheelchair Marathon if that's what works for you, and you can spread the miles across days, weeks or months too. It's also a great event to do with the children, getting them outside enjoying some fresh air and exercise.

My Peace Marathon really is open to everyone. All you need to do is track your 26.2 miles and raise £26.20p for Peace Hospice Care.

 

If you run a children's activity group such as Brownies, cubs, toddler dance or a playgroup then why not get the children involved? Those with the littlest legs could even do it in a group.

 

When we have received your mileage, we will send you and any other participants your medal and a great big thank you from us. The most innovative and exciting ways chosen to complete the marathon distance (photos must be provided) will be shown on our social media and may even win a small prize! Those with the littlest legs can come in and meet Harvey Bear if they wish and he will present them with their certificates.

 

 

All you need to do is download our application form and email it to events@peacehospsicecare.org.uk or send it in the post of Peace Hospice Care, Peace Drive, Watford, WD17 3PH. The registration fee is £5 per person.

How will I know when I've completed My Peace Marathon?

Keep your fundraising page updated and we will ask you for a weekly update from your start date on how many miles you have completed. Once we see you have hit 26.2 miles, we will send you a medal so you can celebrate your achievement!

For more information or if you have any questions please email events@peacehospicecare.org.uk or call 01923 335 373.

Michelle Foster, Lisa Brewster and Nikki Barnard took on this challenge together and completed it in just two weeks and raised over £3,000 for Peace Hospice Care! Here's what they thought of the experience...

'We loved the whole thing! Right from the planning stage, choosing our route and the amount of days we'd do it over to the very last run. We had so much support and were cheered on by family, friends, colleagues and school Mum's and Dad's. We wanted to do it in the shorter time frame then the 1,3 or 6 months that were recommended as we really wanted to push ourselves and loved being able to tick off each mile/km as we completed them. And seeing the donations go up and up was so exciting. For anyone thinking about taking part, absolutely do it! It was so much fun and so satisfying to tick off those distances each time we did them. A fantastic idea for people who perhaps can't make it to the big events and are just starting out with running.'
