Wow – what a day we had at the London Marathon 2023! 

We were delighted to cheer on our awesome team of 14 who all smashed the iconic London Marathon on behalf of Challengers on Sunday 23rd April! We were in total awe of them all, not just for running 26.2 miles, but for all their hard work over the past six months with their endless training and amazing fundraising.  

To our incredible 2023 team, thank you so much for everything! It was an absolute pleasure to have you all as part of Team Orange – we feel so grateful for your incredible dedication and support. We are very pleased to announce the team raised a whopping £33,259 (and counting) for Challengers which is an incredible contribution to our work – and to everyone that supported our runners, a BIG thank you to you too!  

All our runners have been wonderful, but we want to give a big shout out to Nick Kennedy for this being his fourth and final marathon in aid of Challengers – and raising over £10,000 over this year!

Thank you very much Nick!  

There is no other event quite like the the London Marathon – it is the biggest one-day fundraising event in the world. Watching the 40,000 runners take on this amazing challenge in aid of their respective charities is a real honour and at times quite emotional. 

We have created a short video below about the day – and if you’re feeling inspired…you can enter the ballot until 9pm Friday 28th April 2023. Or better still, if you want to be one of Challengers epic Team Orange runners in 2024, then you can apply for one of our charity spaces here!
