Marathon Day Marathon
Run the Marathon Day Marathon. Click here to find out more about how you can run a marathon for Alder Hey Children’s Charity. Good luck!
As far as marathon events go, this one is particularly poignant because it takes place on ‘marathon day’ (26/2) and is therefore definitely one for the marathon list! An annual fitness challenge that sees many runners flock to the Deal sea front, this race is also the perfect excuse to get involved with some fundraising for Alder Hey Children’s Charity! To continue doing the amazing work that we do, we rely on donations from people who are running marathons just like this one. A marathon run for charity is the perfect way to help a good cause and improve your fitness at the same time!
Add the Marathon Day Marathon to your marathon list, whether you’re a marathon runner that enjoys taking part in long-distance races regularly, or you’re taking your very first marathon challenge. At Alder Hey Children’s Charity, appreciate every single donation that comes our way. After you’ve entered the marathon, it’s time to begin your training plan – remember, if you’re new to long-distance running, to leave yourself plenty of time to steadily improve your training, rather than rushing and getting injured. Once you’re able to complete a distance of 20 miles comfortably, you should be ready for your marathon.
