7 friends, 7 days, 1 marathon

Who’s in your squad?

This is a collaborative fundraising event organised by the Mintridge Foundation based around the postponed London Marathon. We would like to encourage participants to nominate themselves and 6 friends to complete the London Marathon distance over 7 days between them.

You can walk, jog, run, cycle or scoot to complete the distance. It's inclusive and ready for you all! You can start this challenge at any time on any day - you just have 7 days to complete 26.2 miles between you! 

All members of your squad are encouraged to donate £2.62 via this page to allow us to continue our programs and encourage sport and activity in young people both during and after COVID-19.

This is a solo, virtual challenge. Please do not organise to do this in groups but support your SQUAD digitally.

The current government advice is that it's safe to go outside for exercise once a day alone or with a member of your household as long as you keep a safe distance from other people (at least a 2 metre distance). You must follow Government advice and minimise the amount of time you are outside – so please ensure that you complete the challenge as part of your daily exercise routine. It is essential that you do not exercise outside more than you would normally. Please read the Government's guidance and adhere to it at all times. If the government advice changes, the challenge will be paused. 

What are you waiting for? 

Nominate, Donate, Activate! 

Tag your chosen squad on social media and let's do this! 

Record your miles on any tracking app.

Submit lots of images - we can't wait to see you all!

The Mintridge Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to enhancing life skills in young people through sport. We provide a support network for young people by harnessing the power of positive sporting role models. The Mintridge Foundation assists young people of all ages, abilities and physical capabilities to develop confidence and resilience, and creates awareness of the importance of mental and physical wellbeing through sport.

Our team of Ambassadors - Olympians, Paralympians and other professional sports stars from over 20 sports, both team and individual - work with young people in schools, clubs and academies across the UK. Starting with visits including assemblies, coaching clinics and classroom sessions tailored to each organisation’s requirements, our ambassadors can then provide one- on- one remote mentoring in a safeguarded environment, delivered via technology such as Skype and Playwaze to build a lasting legacy for individuals.

The Mintridge Foundation’s successes demonstrate the incredible power of sport; from a mentee’s selection to represent Great Britain in their chosen field to enabling disabled children to find confidence and happiness just through participation. Understanding life after sport, we also support our Ambassadors in their transition from active sport to the next stage of their careers.
