The Marathon March is back!

We're back for our seventh Marathon March in 2023, on Saturday 14th October.


The Marathon March returns for its 7th year!

The six previous years have seen Palace fans raise over half a million pounds for young people in their community.

We welcome everyone to the Marathon March, a non-competitive event covering 26.2 miles of our home: south London.

The primary goal is to raise money for Palace for Life to help transform the lives of young south Londoners.

To get involved in our 2023 Marathon March, sign up HERE

The Marathon March will take place on Saturday 14th October 2023, starting at Selhurst Park, ending with a lap of the pitch, before another fantastic party at the stadium!

Here’s the route you’ll be walking this year…

Once signed up, you will receive our fundraising guide & graphics, alongside a training programme; created by Palace fan and personal trainer Beulah Pickles to help prepare for the big day.

On the day itself we will provide you with your Marathon March T-Shirt as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner to keep you fuelled up during the 26.2-mile walk. Once you cross the finish line, your finishers medal will be waiting for you!

All participants are asked to pay a registration fee of £25 (£20 for half route, £10 under 18s) and to commit to raising a minimum of £300 each in sponsorship.

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

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