Have you always fancied taking on a marathon but can never find the time to train? Do you want the thrill of the challenge and to be rewarded with a bespoke medal but can’t manage 26.2 miles in one day?

Join us for a marathon month this October and go the distance for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice.  You choose the time, place and set your own pace to complete the 26.2 miles   i-Marathon challenge in 31 days during October.

It couldn’t be easier to get involved!

Sign up for FREE today and pledge to raise a minimum of £26 in sponsorship to receive your own commemorative medal. Or why not go the extra mile and pledge to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship and you will receive a medal and Hospice t-shirt?

How does it work?

Starting from Sunday 1st October you have 31 days to run a total distance of 26.2 miles. You can do this where ever and whenever you want throughout the month, so whether you choose to run 1 mile a day of over 26 days at the gym or run once a week around your local park, get out there as much as you can and clock up the miles to complete the distance.

How can you track your miles?

There are many ways to track your miles.

  • Download RunKeeper.com a free app that will link to your Give Penny fundraising page
  • Use our paper tracker (available in your free welcome pack) and track your distance via:
    • FitBit, GPS watch or any other smart wear
    • Download a free smart phone app tracking app
    • Take screenshots of your treadmill distance

How do you get your medal?

Once you’ve completed your distance simply let us know by returning your ‘completed distance form’, along with your sponsorship money or details of your online giving page. We will aim to send out your medal (and T-shirt if applicable) within 2 weeks of you returning your form.
