Join us on Saturday 24th September 2022 for the 6th edition of our Marathon March, walking 26.2 miles around south London to raise money for young people in our local community.  

Once again starting and finishing at our home, Selhurst Park, we will be unveiling a brand-new south London route for this year’s walk. The March will finish with a lap of the pitch, followed by a Palace party at the stadium to celebrate.  

 History was made at last year’s event, with over £100,000 raised and more than 150 sign-ups. This creates a brilliant opportunity to build on this and break more records through the Power of Palace. Sign up HERE to play your part! 

2021 saw Palace legend Mark Bright complete his 5th marathon with us, former-Olympian Martyn Rooney tackle his first and comedian Eddie Izzard run her 26.2 miles simultaneously in Toronto, Canada.  Previous years have also seen the likes of Steve Parish, Andy Gray and Andy Johnson take part, walking alongside hundreds of fans of all ages. 

Palace for Life CEO Mike Summers, who has also walked all five added: “Our 5th anniversary Marathon March was a special day for the Foundation. I felt so proud seeing a record number of Palace fans come together for their community, it was amazing that everyone’s hard work paid off as we raised £100,000 for the first time.   

It’s never been tougher for young people growing up in south London, which makes supporting the Marathon March more important than ever. It’s a real highlight of my year, walking and talking with fellow Palace fans along the route, the sense of camaraderie is unmatched. I look forward to walking with as many of you as possible for 2022!”  

Palace fans, along with sponsor Utilita, have raised over £450,000 for the Foundation at the event over the past four years, directly supporting our work with vulnerable young people in south London. 

All participants will receive a Marathon March T-Shirt, a finishers medal, and for the first time this year, training programmes leading up to the event; created by Palace fan and personal trainer, Beulah Pickles.
