Marathon March

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

The Marathon March is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year, where Palace fans March for 26.2 miles from Selhurst Park into London all in the name of raising money for Palace for Life Foundation.


We are currently planning our best Marathon March yet for 2020!

All will be revealed on 26 December, 2019.


The Marathon March is a marathon-length walk from Selhurst Park to Trafalgar Square that brings 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.

Three years of the Marathon March have seen Palace fans raise over £200,000 for the Foundation towards our work in south London!
