Walk a marathon in a month for PMRGCAuk

Posted on 15 May 2024

Grab your trainers or your walking boots and join us for our Marathon in a Month this July to raise money to help patients with PMR or GCA.

Whether you want to walk 26.2 miles by yourself or with a group of friends or family, the choice is yours. If there’s a group of you, you can also decide whether to each walk a marathon or share the miles between you. By taking part, you will help more people with PMR or GCA receive the support they need to manage their condition.

The miles can be spread over 26 days or over a weekend and on any route you choose. You might want to vary the route or map out a single lap that you repeat until the marathon is complete.

A mile is around 2,000 steps for the average person. You can measure steps using a fitness tracker watch or by downloading the Active 10 app devised by Public Health England. You’ll need a smartphone for this.
