Marathon in a Month is Hospiscare’s brand new virtual marathon event, raising vital funds to help support over 2000 patients and their families living with a terminal illness across Exeter, Mid and East Devon.
Whether you’re a champion marathon runner or more comfortable on the couch, this challenge is for everyone, including the dog! Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to run, jog or walk a marathon in a month (October, to be precise!) – in your own way and at your own pace.
You may choose to jog a mile every day, walk two half marathons, or go for broke with the full monty in one go. Who are we to limit your ambition?! You may even want to do a marathon every week! Our Marathon in a Month takes place throughout October, so there’s plenty of time to plan your approach, get your running playlist ready and start raising funds for Hospiscare. If 300 Marathon in a Month participants were to raise £60 sponsorship each, that would be a rantastic £18,000 for Hospiscare, which would be enough to fund 352 home visits from a specialist Hospiscare nurse. That’s almost one visit for every day of the year!
All our amazing participants will each receive a Hospiscare medal as a ‘thank you’ for their efforts and to celebrate their heroic achievement.
So what are you waiting for?
