July 2020

This July, run, jog or walk 26.2 miles, whenever and wherever you like. You don’t need to be a marathon runner to take part in Samarathon. Take on 26.2 miles in your own time and pace to help Samaritans save lives.


Funds Raised

Getting out and exercising works wonders for our mental wellbeing, and Samarathon is the perfect goal. Whatever your age or ability, this is your challenge, to do in your time, at your pace, wherever you live or work.

  1. Organise to do it on your own or as a team with family, friends or work mates.
  2. Walk, jog or run 26.2 miles over the month of July.
  3. Ask everyone you know to sponsor you, and help Samaritans be there for anyone struggling to cope.

Win! Raise £150 or more and not only could you help fund over 30 calls for help, you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win sporting goodies too!

Get Social

If you live outside of the UK, you’re still able to sign up or make donations but all currency on Everydayhero is localised to the country that the campaign was created. This means that donations to Samarathon pages will display in GBP.
