Samarathon - the marathon that's run around your life

"I'm taking part in Samarathon because Samaritans kept me safe. I will always be grateful for their services". Han, blogger

Samarathon is our brand new virtual marathon event, where you can take on 26.2 miles in your own time and pace this July to help Samaritans save lives.

You don't have to be a marathon runner to take part, we're inviting the nation to run, jog or walk over the course of July to raise money and help us be there for those struggling to cope.

Samarathon is free to enter, and we'll be sharing training tips, fundraising advice, guest videos, blogs and more, to help along the way.
