Running the Marathon 2021

Who's running the 2021 London Marathon for St Michael's and Why?

The Virgin Money London Marathon takes place this year on 3 October and St Michael's runners are gearing up for the challenge. You can show your support by sponsoring them and sharing their news with your friends and networks.  


"If you know me, you know I love running marathons and I've completed marathons all over the world, including all the famous ones! Each year, THE most important marathon for me is London, because that's when I raise funds for St Michael's Fellowship, an amazing local charity helping disadvantaged children and families." Read about a recent meet up with Rush here. 


"St Michael's Fellowship is a great charity which supports vulnerable families across south London with residential centres and parenting support."


"There for families when they need them most. Changing children's lives with support, advice and training for parents. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations."


"The running shoes are back on! I'm hitting the streets of London in October and running the London Marathon to raise money for a fantastic charity."


"I started running in the first lockdown last year, while struggling to keep my mental balance. Unable to see friends and family and having less options to spend time doing the things I used to love, I hit the parks to cope with an overwhelming sense of anxiety. Running has quickly become a mental relief and a time of peace and quiet.

But I am aware that many people in my community never get to enjoy this feeling and constantly deal with much more severe issues. As such, I want my running to go beyond making me feel good and make a difference in the lives of those less privileged. I came across the work of this charity and knew I wanted to support what they are doing."
