Have you ever watched the London Marathon on the telly and thought: "one day I’d like to do that”? Well now is your chance.

40 for 40 Marathon Challenge

Next year the Sobell House Hospice turns 40!
That’s forty years of caring for our community, supporting our friends and families who are affected by terminal illness, and caring for their bereaved families.

To celebrate we’re asking you, our supporters, to take on the 40 for 40 marathon challenge in 2016.

We want to get 40 marathons run in aid of Sobell House for our 40th birthday, one for every year of compassion and care that we’ve provided for the residents of Oxfordshire.

There are a host of marathons around the country (and overseas) available. Already we have people signed up and committed to running at Brighton, Nottingham, Abingdon as well as London

Whether the race you choose is a big city road race (Dublin, Edinburgh) overseas (Paris, Rome) or smaller UK race (Milton Keynes, Brighton, Abingdon, Isle of Wight) off-road or trail race (South Downs, Broadway, Portsmouth Coastal) there is a race to suit you.

We’ll support you along the way with fundraising and training advice as well as giving you your highly sought after Sobell running vest.

All we ask is that you pledge to raise money for Sobell House along the way as you tackle your own 26.2 mile challenge.

40 for 40 Marathon Challenge

To find out more or let us know about your marathon contact kevin.game@sobellhospice.org or call 01865 857012

Keep checking back for updates of dates of other races throughout 2016.
