Event information

Date: You have a full calendar month from the date of signing up to complete your challenge
Location: In the park, along the beach, down the road... it's your walk, your way

Marathon Month is our virtual walking event that challenges you to walk a marathon – that’s 26.2 miles – in one month. It’s your walk, so when and where you go is completely up to you. You can take on a solo challenge or team up with friends; you could even organise a big walk and get your whole community involved.

There’s no minimum fundraising target, but if you raise £50 or more, we’ll send you your own branded Meningitis Now buff and Marathon Month certificate to say thank you.

Walk more; worry less

You don't need to be super-fit to take part in Marathon Month and in fact, taking part could bring a whole host of physical and mental health benefits. In addition, every mile you walk and every pound you raise will help people who have been affected by meningitis. 

Sign up for free today and we’ll send you a free fundraising pack full of tips, tools and inspiring ideas for your walk.
