Phoenix - Year End Marathon & Half Marathon

Event Ended This event has now finished.

Run either the Phoenix Year End Marathon or Half Marathon.

The Marathon

For a beautifully scenic marathon run for charity, look no further than the Phoenix Year End Marathon – which encourages runners to complete four laps of the Thames in a 26.2-mile challenge. Running any marathon is both a mental and physical challenge and requires a high level of fitness and a huge amount of training. Adding fundraising into the mix makes this a marathon a challenge like no other and we’d absolutely love it if you could consider raising money for Alder Hey Children’s Charity to help us to continue doing our amazing work. Whether you’re an experienced marathon runner or are completing your first marathon, every runner’s donations count!

The Half Marathon

If you’re less experienced, or even just prefer a shorter distance, this event is definitely one to consider and is also a fantastic way to improve your fitness and raise money for charity. The Firebird 4 is a series of marathons and half marathons, with the Year End being the final in the series. Enter all four or try your hand at one – it’s the taking part and fantastic fundraising that counts!
