Run for SOS Children in the Chester Marathon

We are delighted to announce that SOS Children has been chosen as an Associate Charity of the 2011 MBNA Chester Marathon taking place on Sunday October 9th 2011.

With 2000 years of history, stunning countryside, great atmosphere and a spectacular grandstand finish, this race is set to be a success. If you’re interested in registering for a place, or would like to find out more please get in touch. Once registered, we will be with you every step of the way providing you with all the fundraising support and sideline cheers you need.

If this isn’t the race for you, have a look at our other running events taking place in 2011:

February 27th: High Legh 10km (Cheshire)

There are only a few places left on this race whose route goes through the lovely Cheshire villages and surrounding countryside.

April 17th: Virgin London Marathon

If you were lucky enough to be successful in the ballot and have your own place we would love to welcome you to Team SOS Children UK. There is no minimum sponsorship pledge, we just ask you to raise as much money as possible! We will provide you with a fundraising pack, running vest and lots of support.

July 10th:  London British 10km

Race through the heart of the capital, taking in some of the city’s most iconic sights. Each year the event is a sell-out attracting 25,000 runners including top athletes and celebrity runners.

We are just about to launch ‘Team SOS Children UK’ on Facebook. Why not join and meet past, present and future fundraisers. Pass on top tips, discuss ideas and see what other members of the SOS Children community are up to.
