This event is all about raising money for Make A Wish. One of our users is running the London Marathon in 2020 and has been chosen by Make A Wish to raise money for them. You have a choice of running 5km, 10km, a half marathon or a full marathon. Don't worry though, unlike the real London Marathon, you are allowed to run as many times as you like to reach your chosen distance! All profits from this virtual run will go towards their target. You can also provide extra donations via our donations button and be in with a chance to win some cool prizes!
We have chosen a design to represent everything that is great about the London Marathon and Make A Wish. Remember the days when we would pick up a dandelion and make a wish? Well, you could be making some of those wishes come true such as swimming with dolphins, going to the beach, seeing their favourite musical artist and many more. This is a great medal for a great cause!
A child's life shouldn't be about illness, hospital appointments, diagnosis and pain - it should be about joy, happiness, fun and hope. Make A Wish ensure that children with critical illnesses can still have some great experiences that they otherwise may not be able to have. Even something as simple as a trip to the beach can bring the best of smiles to the child, and family's, face!
For this event, as it is purely for charity, we will be giving away a RFTW prize box for the top five on the donations leaderboard! Check out the How It Works page and FAQs for how to accumulate donations. Each prize box is worth £25 and has a range of running and other goodies!
