Looking for a new challenge in 2022? Take on the iconic 26.2-mile London Marathon in aid of the Professional Cricketers’ Trust on Sunday 2 October.
PCA partner New Balance has kindly donated places to our charity for the annual event, which will take place on the first weekend of October for the second year in a row, and you can contact Fundraising Executive Sam Relf at email@example.com in the first instance to register your interest.
You’ll have plenty of time to train and prepare for the winding 42km route, which begins in Greenwich Park in south east London and ends in front of the world famous Buckingham Palace, passing many of the capital’s most recognisable landmarks along the way.
Established in 1981, the TCS London Marathon sees over 50,000 athletes take to the streets of the UK capital each year to raise money for charity, with an estimated over £1bn donated to good causes over the past 40 years.
A fundraising target of £2,500 is assigned to each of the Trust’s entrants, and that money will go towards helping current and former professional cricketers when they need it most.
The Trust is the registered charity of the PCA, and offers assistance including mental health support, provision of specialist medical equipment and advice in times of hardship. Since 2015, the Trust has supported 460 individuals in the area of mental health alone.
In addition to the London Marathon, the Trust also has spaces available for the London Landmarks Half Marathon on Sunday 3 April, and you can register your interest using the details below.
