Leicester Marathon – Run the World

The Leicester Marathon scheduled for 11th October has unfortunately been cancelled due to the pandemic.

Instead the organisers are asking people to take part in a virtual event – ‘Run the World’ from 1st – 30th September.  Full details can be found on the organisers website:  Leicester Marathon.

You can choose to link your fitness logging device and run as many miles as you wish during the period – all contributing to a Leicester (and also wider running community) total – can you help get to the USA?

If you would like to link your running around the world efforts to raising funds for Charity Link we would of course be extremely grateful and there is no doubt we need your support more than ever.

It costs £15 to register and you will receive a Run the World medal from the organisers.

Run to raise funds for Charity Link and we can provide a Charity Link t-shirt / vest so you can highlight your support, along with sponsorship forms etc.

You could also choose to link your Run the World efforts to our Strides Apart event, also taking place in September.  Can you run 16 miles in one day – or over our Strides Apart dates of 12th – 27th September?
