Samarathon
July 2021

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 move at your own pace to help Samaritans save lives.

Getting out and moving 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. Do it on your own or as a virtual team with family, friends or workmates.
  2. Run, jog or walk 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 you’ll not only help fund over 30 calls for help, but also be entered into a prize draw to win amazing sporting goodies from Contur and Tribe Sports!

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