Run the MK Marathon and fundraise for your favorite charity

Run For Charity

Run the MK Marathon and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Running for a charity gives you additional motivation. It increases your focus on those long winter nights and when the training gets tough it makes completing the MK Marathon even more rewarding. Every charity will offer you incentives to help you reach your fundraising goals, as well as invaluable support and advice in the lead up to, and on your big day.

If you are a Charity and would like to see how you can benefit from our event then please download our Charity Pack 2019 here.
