Every day in the UK, two babies will develop a life-threatening group B Strep infection.
This April we challenge you to take on the distance of a Marathon in a Month, your way, and raise vital awareness of group B Strep infection in newborn babies and help prevent these devastating infections in the UK.
You can run, walk, swim, cycle, row the 26.2 miles – whichever way you choose to take part, you’ve got the month of April to complete your challenge and raise at least £100 for Group B Strep Support.
You are going to be amazing and you will make a real difference.
Be part of Marathon in a Month challenge and join us today!

- Fundraising Target:
Last year over 30 supporters challenged themselves and took on the Marathon in a Month challenge in their own way.
I completed the challenge to walk a Marathon in a Month which I did in memory of my Grand-daughter, Pippa Griffiths, who we lost to group B Strep in 2016. I am proud to have raised funds and awareness of this infection in babies.
I enjoyed completing the challenge, which was also a personal challenge to myself as I am recovering from having had 2 new knee replacements .
The challenge has encouraged me to keep walking!
It’s your choice. It’s that easy!
Sign up now and tell us you’re going to complete the 26.2 miles during the month of April. Make a difference and do something incredible this year!
