Brighton, Berlin and New York Marathons

Brighton Marathon 2014

6th Apr 2014 - A great alternative to the London Marathon, this race has an impressive course with lovely and varied views at every mile - town, country, and seaside. The organisation is faultless and the people of Brighton really embrace the marathon atmosphere, giving the best support to the runners in every way possible.

The race route starts with a loop of gorgeous Preston Park, and then takes in the best of the city centre including Brighton Pavilion and fabulous stretches of coastal road, including panoramic views that you'd expect where the glorious South Downs meet the English Channel. Generally, it is a fast course, held exclusively on roads and tarmac promenade.

This is how Rob Crozier, who was part of our team in 2012, commented on it:

"I loved every minute of it. The crowds were fabulous and shouted your name...and if you run for the rainforest they shout..C'mon Rob, you are running for the Rainforest. Lots of spectators open their houses and supply music, some good and bad, lots of jelly babies, sweets and drinks. I think the crowd loves it just as much as some runners do."

If you want to register to secure your place (deadline 28th February) email events@rainforestuk.org or give us a call on +44 (0) 20 7485 0193 and we will send you an application form and info pack to get you off and running!

If you have a place in the Marathon, and would like to join our team - welcome! Just email events@rainforestuk.org or give us a call on +44 (0) 20 7485 0193 and we'll send you a pack with our info.

Berlin Marathon 2014

28th September 2014 - The Berlin Marathon first started in 13th October 1974 on a minor road next to the stadium of the organisers‘ club SC Charlottenburg Berlin where 286 athletes had entered. One of the first winners, Günter Hallas (2:44:53), still runs the BERLIN-MARATHON today alongside over 40,000 other competitors! 

Berlin has long been renowned for its slick organisation and fast course, and its route is one of the most compelling ever, passing through famous and infamous districts on excellent roads and finally passing through the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol of the old divide between east and west, just before the finish line. For the Berlin Marathon we work in conjunction with 2.09 Events Ltd, who are an official tour operator for the race. They package up guaranteed places in the race with flights and (if you require it) accommodation. They also offer supporter packages should you want to invite friends and family to cheer you on.

We do not ask for a minimum sponsorship pledge for the Berlin Marathon because we have to ask you to buy your own place in the race, however, we do offer an optional refund scheme to runners who choose RFUK as their charity.

If you are interested in a place or you have your own place and you would you like to run for us, please contact us at events@rainforestuk.org or call 020 7485 0193

New York Marathon 2014

2nd November 2014 - If you want to run a marathon, then The ING New York City Marathon should be at the top of your list. The city is big, brash and exciting - the marathon is equally so. You will run through a melting pot of ethnic and cultural influences as you leave suburban Staten Island, run through Brooklyn and Queens before crossing into Manhattan, briefly pass through the Bronx and finish in Central Park.

The crowds are the best, the loudest, the most fun - simply they are New Yorkers and they are determined to welcome ‘the World to Run' as the New York Road Runner's are proud to claim. For the New York Marathon we work in conjunction with 2.09 Events Ltd, who are an official tour operator for the race. They package up guaranteed places in the race with flights and (if you require it) accommodation. They also offer supporter packages should you want to invite friends and family to cheer you on.

We do not ask for a minimum sponsorship pledge for the ING New York City because we have to ask you to buy your own place in the race, however, we do offer an optional refund scheme to runners who choose RFUK as their charity.

If you are interested in a place or you have your own place and you would you like to run for us, please us at events@rainforestuk.org or call 020 7485 0193

13th April 2014 - The London Marathon is one of the biggest running events in the world, and one of the five top world marathon that make up the World Marathon Major competition. On top of that, it's also a large, celebratory sporting event which sees London as its best protagonist. If you only want to run one marathon in your life, this is the one!

This is Jamey's experience, who run for us in 2013:

"I want to say a big thank you to you! I’m so pleased that I ran on Sunday, I had a great time and it was a real life-achievement that I owe to RFUK for offering me a place."
