About the event

We’re challenging you to run 26.2 or 50 miles over the whole of January to help children and families in hospice care live life as fully as possible, for the time they have left together.

You can run anywhere, anytime and any way to complete your challenge, whether that’s doing it as a couple of long runs at weekends, or breaking it down to daily jogs. Run on road, off road, or even on a treadmill to reach your goal – it all adds up!

Be a My Marathon Month megastar this January!
It’s just £15 to register, for the marathon or ultra-marathon challenge.

All we ask is that you try and raise £150 for either Chestnut Tree House or St Barnabas House Hospices (when you log in to the event app after registration, you’ll be asked which hospice you wish your money to go to). You’ll get a well-deserved medal after your challenge to show what a difference you’ve made.

Don’t want to run alone?
If you feel a marathon or ultra-marathon is too much to take on alone, or you want to get your team mates involved, no problem…

Take part with a buddy:
You both sign up for My Marathon Month, then split your distance however you wish. We kindly ask that you both try and raise £150.

Take part as a team:
Simply get 5 or 10 teammates all to sign up for My Marathon Month, then split the distance between everyone. With a team of 5 or more, we’d kindly ask you all to try and raise £100.

If you have any further questions, you can see the My Marathon Month FAQs on the Chestnut Tree House or St Barnabas House websites, and get in touch with the Events Team too.


About Chestnut Tree and St Barnabas House

Running for Chestnut Tree House…
Your support means local children and families who know they don’t have long together have the chance to live life to the full and say goodbye in the way that is right for them.

At Chestnut Tree House, kids can be astronauts for the day in the multi-sensory room, discover creepy crawlies on a woodland walk, or form their very own pop group in the music room.

It is a place where parents can just be parents, and not carers, and where siblings have people to talk to who understand.

Chestnut Tree Events Team will be there every step of the way for you, with special Team Chestnut Strava run club, Team Chestnut run group on Facebook, and Running Info Hub.

Running for St Barnabas House…
Your support means adults with terminal illnesses and their loved ones can live life as fully as possible, for the time they have left together.

For some, this might mean regular day visits to the hospice for social activities, physiotherapy, complementary therapy, exercise classes, spiritual support or counselling.

Others might need to stay overnight for help managing complex physical symptoms, with a third of patients returning home more comfortable and relaxed after a short stay.

St Barnabas Events Team will be there every step of the way for you, with special Team St Barnabas Strava run club, Team St Barnabas run group on Facebook, and Running Info Hub.
