Why run the Amsterdam Marathon for the NSPCC?
Personalised NSPCC goodies
You'll receive a charity running vest that you can personalise with your name so your supporters can cheer you on as you run past! We'll also send you a fundraising welcome pack in the post to help you get started with your fundraising.
Fundraising and training support
You'll receive fundraising support via email, access to a personalised training plan from our training partner Full Potential and regular Zoom calls where you can talk to the training experts. You'll have everything you need and more!
As well as all of these benefits, you'll be doing something amazing for children.
On average, a child contacts Childline every 45 seconds, and it costs just £4 to answer them.
Raising £400 by running the Amsterdam Marathon could pay for up to 100 children to get the help and support they need from our Childline counsellors.
Help us to stand up for children. Run for us and together we can change children's lives.
Meet some of our past participants
The whole NSPCC team are amazing, and it was a pleasure to support a fantastic charity - well done team NSPCC.
It was lovely to know although I was on my own, I was part of a team. I knew who to ask for help and advice on logistics, fundraising and training.
Everyone has been amazing giving me the confidence to raise my sponsorship money and actually finish the marathon.
