Register your interest for London Marathon 2017 and help young people build a better future.
If you’ve been inspired to take part in the world famous London Marathon, we have 7 places available on Team YMCA for 2017 and we would love to hear from you!
The fundraising target for each participant is £2,000 (which will be split equally between YMCA England and YMCA East Surrey). A £100 non-refundable fee is payable on registration, which will go towards your final sponsorship amount.
What to expect from us
We know that training and running the marathon is a big challenge to undertake so we’ll be with you every step of the way.
As part of Team YMCA you will receive:
- A fundraising and training pack full of tips and advice
- A high-quality YMCA running vest
- Support on the day from our dedicated cheering points
- A post-race reception where you can enjoy a well-deserved massage and refreshments.
We will be organising a variety of training runs to help you get ready for this event. Details of 2017 training programme will be available later in the year.
Money raised from all our events will help us create a brand new, disability sports, fitness and wellbeing facility, designed to inspire and support people of all ages and ability to be more active and healthy.
This will be a centre of excellence for families, those suffering from learning and physical disabilities, people with emotional and mental health issues, the elderly and people recovering from chronic illness. The purpose-built, fully accessible facility will offer a wide programme of disability sports, rehabilitation and preventative health activities, delivered by specialist, friendly staff and inspiring volunteers. Our aim is to create a wonderful culture of inclusivity, where everyone feels welcome and is empowered to create healthy, active and fulfilling lives.
