Run for Bhopal! Marathon Events for 2018

The marathon is the classic long-distance race with an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (or 26 miles 385 yards). It’s usually run around cities and, thanks to its extended distance, takes in whatever famous sights the host city offers.

From this year, we’re able to offer marathon places in various cities around the UK, including our ‘home’ event in Brighton, various Europe cities, and even one crossing the beautiful South Downs. Why not take in one of these amazing locations and combine a holiday with your fundraising?!

For most sponsored events, we pay for your place, give you a nice red running vest or T-shirt and give you as much online support and fundraising advice as possible. We always set very modest, and achievable, fundraising targets. For larger teams we are happy to consider a deal on sponsorship targets, plus we can offer support on the day and even post-event picnics.

We can now offer places in marathons, around the country and in Europe. See below for details and please contact Matt at run@bhopal.org for more information.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
