2: Access to the Whizz Kidz team coach

Everyone running for us gets access to our team coach. Our coach gives helpful advice on all things marathon running such as training plans and diet. It's no secret on the charity scene that Whizz Kidz runners are the best prepared runners at the marathon!

3: Get a free running vest

OK, we know everyone running for a charity gets a free vest, but ours are the coolest, most styish and are higly sought after. In 2024 we'll also have a brand new look, meaning not only will you run fast, you'll look fabulous whilst doing so.

4: We're big enough to make a difference but small enough to care

We know there are hundreds of amazing charities you could choose to run for. However, Whizz Kidz are big enough to make a real difference to the lives of young wheelchair users but also small enough to care about you, our amazing fundraisers.

5: Empower a young wheelchair user

The money you raise will help us reach our even more young wheelchair users. If you raised around £2,000, that could be enough for us to buy a life-changing powered wheelchair for a young person. That’s something really tangible to motivate you through each of the 26.2 miles.
