Berlin Marathon – September 2023

Apply for a charity place in the Berlin Marathon

We are very excited to announce that we have three charity places for the Berlin Marathon in 2023. This is an exciting opportunity for any keen runner, and the fact that you could do it for Willen Hospice is even better!

Famed as being the flattest and fasted marathon in the world, this is a great route to set a new PB or start out. As you run you will get to take in the sights of Berlin’s historic landmarks, including the Berlin Wall and the Reichstag.

The exact date is yet to be confirmed but we believe it will take place around 24 September 2023.

We kindly ask each runner to raise a minimum of £1200. We will help you with your fundraising and training every step of the way. To apply for a charity place, email challenges@willen-hospice.org.uk

Money raised through events like these help us to continue providing specialist palliative care for local patients at the end of their lives, or with a life-limiting illness. Below is a video showing the difference your support makes.
