Could you complete a Marathon in a Month?

Get moving by taking part in Depaul’s Marathon in a Month challenge while raising vital funds to support people who are homeless. You are invited to complete the distance of a marathon during the month of April and track your progress online as you do the 42km!

How it Works:
  • Register for your FREE t-shirt and fundraising pack.
  • Create your own Marathon in a Month in April Facebook Fundraiser. If you don’t have a Facebook page no problem, you can fundraise on JustGiving.
  • If you are in the Republic of Ireland you can create your JustGiving page HERE.
  • If you are in Northern Ireland you can create your JustGiving page HERE.
  • Join our Marathon in a Month in April Facebook Group to log your progress and receive support from others taking part in the challenge.
  • Once registered you can walk, jog or run a Marathon distance over the month of April, however you choose. Set daily or weekly targets to achieve your goal.

    You’ll receive motivation and support in the Facebook group from hundreds of other people taking part in the challenge. You can also log your progress in the group and see how others are doing!
