Run the London Marathon 2022

Run the London Marathon live event for Iolanthe Midwifery Trust on Sunday 2 October 2022!

This year sees a welcome return to the annual live event which will take place on October 2nd.

Participants are asked to pledge to collect £1,500 in fundraising, which makes a real difference to Iolanthe. 

To reserve your place, please apply here as soon as possible. We'd love to welcome you to the Iolanthe Marathon Team

A marathon can be a rollercoaster of emotions, both during training and on race day. This makes the feeling of success when you reach the finish line like nothing you’ve experienced before. It's a chance to prove to yourself you can tackle anything if you put your mind to it!  Previous Iolanthe participants say that running for something that's 'bigger than you' makes your training even more meaningful. In the words of 2019 Iolanthe London Marathon runner, Ann Stapleton,

To do this whilst giving something back is worth the 5 am training starts. Midwives do an absolutely fantastic job in a difficult profession. Let's support them as much as we can.

Alongside personal reward, Iolanthe runners have the satisfaction of knowing their achievement improves maternal experiences and outcomes for babies and their families, when they most need it. 

It's also possible to plan ahead for 2023! When places are available for then we'll provide a link to register here. 

Virgin Money Giving, which we have previously used, has closed on November 30, 2021, so we will be moving to a new platform for 2022 Marathon Fundraising - more info here as soon as this is confirmed.
