We are inviting the local community to get active by putting on a 'Mini' Marathon Event.

City of London Delivery stage

pledged of £1,889

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

This 'Mini' Marathon with distances of 1.6km, 3km and 5km is an event accessible for all. Whether you are less physically able or at your peak in fitness terms, the distances a manageable and appropriately targeted for all abilities. The course is suitable for wheelchair access using ramps at only one point on the course and accordingly is suitable for families with pushchairs. The key ambition is to welcome newcomers as well as the experienced runner to enjoy a sense of achievement together. This grass roots event supports one of our charity's main aims which is to promote Health & Wellbeing.

What we'll deliver:

  • Advertise to encourage as many people as possible to come and take part.
  • Reward participants with a Medal and Certificate for achieving their goal distances.
  • Run this event open to the public between 11am-4pm on 17th June.

Why it's a great idea:

There is a lot of scientifically supported evidence that a fit body translates to a fit mind. Walking, jogging and running is encouraged for everyone to support their being physically active and resultingly healthy. If willing, we encourage the participant to help raise money for local projects boroughwide. A perfect way to enjoy a community event and support good causes whilst being physically active.

Steps to get it done:

  • That we hold the event on 17th June open to the public between 11am-4pm.
