Please note - some of the events below we have purchased places for, while others are events that you may need to apply directly to the race organisers (although we will help you where we can), and some are events that perhaps you may already be doing and hopefully we can encourage you to run this race for the rainforest.

Virgin Money London Marathon 2015

Virgin London Marathon 2015

26th April 2015 – Last few golden bond places available for the 2015 London Marathon! Please email events@rainforestuk.org  or call us on +44 (0) 20 7485 0193 and we’ll send you an application form and info pack to get you off and running.

By joining our team and reaching the £2,000 fundraising target you will raise enough money to protect an area of tropical rainforest equivalent to length and breadth of the entire 26.2 mile London Marathon course. Read about our many projects here.

We’ll equip you with a technical and personalised running vest, a fundraising pack with dedicated support to help you reach your target, and we will look forward to meeting you at a meet-and-greet event at our Kentish Town office.  We’ll also host a post-race picnic in St James’ Park with professional masseurs on hand to ensure you are well looked after at the end of the day. 

Berlin and New York Marathon

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
