Raising money for Charity:
In the last 30 years the New Forest Marathon has donated over 1.25 million to support over 100 local good causes and community groups. To help this pot grow we have set up the New Forest Marathon Community Fund. We aim to get as many runners as possible to run for this cause but we recognise that you may have other charities close to your heart, if this is the case we encourage you to donate the first 10.00 of sponsorship to the New Forest Marathon Community Fund to help support the local community groups and inspire healthy projects in the forest and surrounding areas.

You can find out more about the New Forest Marathon Community Fund on the fundraising page of the website.

You can make a donation in a number of ways:

1, You can donate at any time on local giving by clicking the link below.

2, If you want to run to raise money for us or wish to fund-raise for us simply click on the link and select 'fundraise for us' at the bottom of the page.

3, Anyone can make a donation at any time via Text Donate by texting TREE29 followed by sign and the amount you want to donate e.g. TREE295 to 70070

A text reply will confirm your donation to HIWCF at which point you can choose to add gift aid. 'HIWCF' stands from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation who manage the fund.

4, We have added an option on the entry page of the race booking process where you can simply add the amount you wish to donate to the fund. After checkout the amount you've entered will go straight to the Community Fund.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support in helping to make a difference in out local community.

Charity Helpers:
The marshals and helpers on the course mostly represent the community groups that you are raising money for. Feel free to ask them how the marathon has helped them in the past.

First Time Runners:
All routes share the same start and finish experience, we have designed it this way to inspire runners to progress to the next level in the following years. It also allows you to share the experience with your friends and family, even if you are doing different distances. If this is your first major run, we recommend the Half marathon as the full marathon can be quite challenging.

You have not entered any participants so far.
