Virgin Money London Marathon 2017


Virgin Money London Marathon 2017

marathon 1383243cChickenshed

The Virgin Money London Marathon is one of the most popular running events in the world, attracting runners from all over the globe.

This 26.2 mile course is flat and fast, taking in London’s most famous sights, and is watched by thousands. It really is a marathon like no other.

In the words of one of Chickenshed’s 2015 Marathon Team: ‘It is so difficult to take it all in; the tardis, ostrich, rhino, DJ, Elvis and a clown with a ladder!

The crowd was overwhelming in most places and the music; from the brass band to the bagpipes - very uplifting’.

And with our guaranteed Gold Bond Places, running for Chickenshed gives you the opportunity to be part of this unmissable event.

Chickenshed needs to raise over £3.5 million every year to continue our work and change the lives of many more children and young people through the performing arts. As part of Team Chickenshed you will be directly supporting us to reach this goal.  

Our marathon support team will be there every step of the way to provide training tips and marathon knowledge.

We will also be on hand to support you to reach your fundraising target, which our runners never fail to do.

It is vital to us that our marathon runners feel valued as ambassadors of our work, but also that they have a truly incredible experience that they will never forget.  Any questions or to apply
