MArathon Team Challenge

The Format: 

Teams are formed of between 2 to 6 runners between 4-14 years of age. Runners can undertake either a 1km or 2km lap before handing over to team mates. Teams must choose to run collectively either a Marathon (42km) or a Half-Marathon (21km). Younger runners may fancy a Half-Marathon which equates to c4km each for a team of 6. Older runners may want to take on a Marathon as a team of 3, so running 14km each. Runners can run each lap solo, in pairs, threes or in any format they desire.

The Glory:

Premium quality race T-shirts will be supplied to every runner. The T-shirt is in lieu of a medal. The design is instantly recognisable and is becoming synonymous with outstanding feats of endurance. Runners have the choice of 5 colours; red, blue, yellow, pink or grey. Please see the side menu for examples of the available colours.

The Fundraising:

It is hoped that each runner raises a minimum sponsorship of £25 per person. Runners are free to select a charity of their choice. After checkout please proceed to the Sponsorship page. Please note, Participants of the 2019 Exmoor Expedition are not required to raise money for this event. Participants of Children’s Challenge events will never be asked to raise sponsorship more than once a year.

The Price:

The price per runner is £15. Please note however, that runners are free to dictate where £10 of their entry fee goes. There will be 3 options at check out:

  1. £10 of the entry fee can go to a designated sports club such as Henley Hawks or Wargrave Wolves that has helped to promote the event; or

  2. £10 of the entry fee can go to the runners school that has helped to promote the event, such as Shiplake or Trinity Primary School; or

  3. £10 of the entry fee can go to a charity that has actively promoted the event.

The reason for the above is to reward clubs, schools and charities that have helped promote the event and by doing so got more children pushing what they believed they were capable of whilst raising money for charity.
