Marathon March

The Marathon March is a 26.2 mile walk that takes place every October, with Palace fans taking on the challenge to show their support for young south Londoners.

The Marathon March is back for 2020, and this time with a twist.

The Marathon March is back on Saturday 10 October 2020, but this time we’ll be starting and finishing at Selhurst Park!

The new route for 2020 will see us start and end our 26.2 mile walk at Selhurst Park, visiting the Palace Training Ground, the home of Palace Women – Bromley FC, Crystal Palace Park and many more.

We will finish the March with a lap of the pitch before a Palace party at the ground!

The marathon-length walk will be running for its fourth year, bringing together Palace fans, legends and supporters. The social event is open to anyone, and is non-competitive, where the primary aim is to raise money for Palace for Life.

The three previous years of the Marathon March have seen Palace fans raise over £200,000 for the Foundation, directly supporting our work with vulnerable young people in south London!

All participants are asked to register for £25 (£20 for half route, £10 under 18s) and commit to raising a minimum of £300 each in sponsorship. All that do will see their name printed in the Palace matchday programme and on the Palace for Life roll of honour on the website. In 2020 if you wish to fundraise as a family or a group we will ask you to commit to the below pledges:

  • Group of four = £600
  • Group of five = £750
  • Group of six = £900
  • Group of 7+ = £1,000

Contact the fundraising team (fundraising@palaceforlife.org) to let us know if you are fundraising as a group or if you have any other queries.
