Big Marathon Month
Ever thought about running a marathon but it felt out of reach? Then look no further, the #BigMarathonMonth is for you!
Complete the marathon distance of 26.2 miles over the month of June and get your friends and family to sponsor you along the way. Whether you run, walk, swim or cycle is entirely up to you – complete the challenge wherever and however you want.
The money you raise throughout the month will help us provide support and accommodation to formerly homeless men and women across the UK. If you raise over £100, you’ll receive an Emmaus medal to celebrate your fantastic effort. Don’t let this limit you though, everything you raise makes a vital difference.
How does it work?
To complete the #BigMarathonMonth cover 26.2 miles over the 30 days in June. You can do a mile a day, all 26 at once or just over 5 miles every weekend.
Everything counts, whether it’s getting off the bus a mile early, taking the family out for a bike ride or clocking up the lengths at the local swimming pool. The main thing is to do it at your pace and just have fun!
