Marathon in May

Your challenge, your way

Can you complete a marathon in a month? PACT invites you to take on its challenge!

Marathon in May is a challenge anyone can do. The aim is to complete a total of 26.2 miles over the 31 days in May.

Run, walk, hike, cycle, wheel, with children, with your dog, with friends or on your own; it’s your challenge, your way!

You can go as fast or slow as you like and do the distance all at once, or break it down into daily or weekly chunks. Take part individually or join together as a family or group of colleagues or friends.

With every mile you cover, you will be helping the families, women and children PACT supports every day.

It costs £15 to sign up and every penny goes towards the people PACT supports through its outstanding adoption services, its specialist therapeutic support, its women’s community project Alana House and its domestic abuse recovery programme Bounce Back 4 Kids.

Everyone taking part can choose to receive an exclusive Marathon in May medal and certificate. Children under 16 can participate for free and you have the option to purchase additional medals for them at £2.50 each.

Register today, share the challenge with friends and family, and get ready to do your Marathon in May!
