London Marathon

Join Team YMCA and help young people build a better future

If you’ve been inspired to take part in the world famous London Marathon, we have places in the 2018 YMCA team – taking place on Sunday 22nd April – and would love to hear from you.

Running through the streets of London in one of the world’s most iconic races, you will be doing something amazing and helping YMCA continue life changing work with young people across England and Wales. You will also be supporting the work of YMCA Milton Keynes.

The fundraising target for each participant is £2,000 (excluding Gift Aid) with a £100 non-refundable registration fee, which will go towards your final sponsorship amount.

Applications for a charity place on Team YMCA are now open – so if you are interested you should initially contact Christine Fox at YMCA Milton Keynes for more information.

What to expect from us

We know that training for and running 26.2 miles is a big challenge to undertake so we will be with you every step of the way.

As part of Team YMCA you will receive:

  • Support on the day from our designated cheer point
  • A post-race reception where you can enjoy a well-deserved massage and refreshments.

“I have had the best weekend; the support from YMCA has been second to none. I have been looked after from the beginning of my fundraising right through to the post-race reception where I was greeted by happy faces, a hot cup of coffee, snacks and a much needed sports massage. Thank you YMCA for the kindness you have shown me on this weekend!”
