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!

To do this whilst giving something back is worth the 5am 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.
