The Meadows Marathon is a Charity Fun Run, Half Marathon and Marathon organised by students with the goal of raising a much money as possible for charity. We're open to anyone who can complete the course (under 16's need to be accompanied by an adult on the day), whether you want to sprint round in your short shorts or lumber round in a sumo suit, they''ll do their best to accommodate you.
It's a great atmosphere for runners, spectators and volunteers. With music blaring and various forms of entertainment around the course, it truly isn't your average walk in the park.
Meadows Marathon isn't just for fun - lots of hardcore runners use us as a training run for the London, Paris, or Edinburgh marathons.
The half marathon is more challenging than the Fun Run, but not as much as the full one.
To make things more fun, the Full and Half marathon will start simultaneously, so if your friend wants to do the Full marathon but you only fancy the Half, you can still run together.
The 5km Fun Run is a great opportunity for runners of all abilities to challenge themselves and have fun. If you’re struggling to keep your new year’s fitness resolution, it’s a great goal to aim for, while allowing you to raise money for us.
