Mini Marathon 2018


The most fun your child will have whilst running 2.62 miles!

Our Mini Marathon is a 2.62 mile sponsored run around Royal Greenwich Park. With a big emphasis on FUN, there is no pressure for children to run the whole way – they can dress up in their favourite fancy dress to run, walk, jog and, most important of all, enjoy the brilliant experience of taking part in the Hospice Mini Marathon!

All funds raised will help support the work of the Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice. There is a £7.50 per child registration fee which covers the cost of running the event so we do ask that children try to raise as much sponsorship as they can to support the work of the Hospice.

Every child will receive a special Mini Marathon medal at the end. Plus Bills Restaurant in Greenwich is very kindly offering 20% off all food to all Mini Marathon participants dinning between Friday 27th to Saturday 5th May.

As always, there will be a prize draw for children who raise over £50 in sponsorship – our way to thank just a few of our fantastic fundraisers.
