The Meadows Marathon is a Charity Fun Run, Half Marathon and Marathon organised by students with the goal of raising a much money as possible for charity. We're open to anyone who can complete the course (under 16's need to be accompanied by an adult on the day), whether you want to sprint round in your short shorts or lumber round in a sumo suit, we'll do our best to accommodate you. It's a great atmosphere for runners, spectators and volunteers. With music blaring and various forms of entertainment around the course, it truly isn't your average walk in the park.
For us it's not about how many runners we can squeeze onto the course. You see, we're a fundraising event, so for us it's about how much money those runners raise. It's why we have a dedicated Charities Manager. Every penny we make goes to charity. In previous years, we have raised £40,000 from 800 odd runners. With your help and enthusiasm, we can beat that total in 2015, and give Meadows Marathon its greatest year yet!
