We are delighted to announce that we have been able to reschedule the event  for Sunday 19 May.

Registering for the rescheduled event

When is The Banham Marsden March?

The Banham Marsden March was due to take place on Sunday 10 March 2019 but unfortunately we were forced to cancel due to adverse weather conditions.

We’re delighted to have rescheduled the event to Sunday 19 May 2019.

The rescheduled event is only open to those who were registered to the 10 March event. We won’t be able to accept any new registrations for the May event.

How do I register for the rescheduled event?

You must re-register to take part in the 19 May event.

On Saturday 30 March, we will send a link to you via email to re-register, you will need to have confirmed you are coming by April 22nd. 

You will need to enter the following details for each walker you are re-registering: First name; Surname; DOB; Email address; Walker number (if you know it)

Please keep hold of your walker pack for the day.

If you have lost your walker pack, or it was lost in the post, you will need to collect the items on the day (walker number; back panel; t-shirt; cap) from the Information Tent.

Will my coach ticket still be valid?

If you had booked a coach ticket for the March event, we will assume you still require a coach and allocate you a new coach time. This will be sent via email.

We are not able to offer any new coach tickets for the May event.

Can I change my chosen distance?

If you get in touch with us before 22 April 2019 we will do our best to change your distance. If you were registered to walk 5 miles but have decided to walk 15 instead, you will need to pay an additional £5.


Can I still get involved if I can’t take part as a walker?

Of course, you don't have to walk to support us – we still need plenty of volunteers on the day, more than ever!

If you were already registered to volunteer on Sunday 10 March, there’s no need to fill in the form again – just pop us an email on [email protected] to let us know you can still make it.

We will try to re-allocate you the same role, but as we may have fewer volunteers, you may have a slightly different role as we need to prioritise the key areas.


Do I need to raise a minimum amount of sponsorship?

The Banham Marsden March is a charity walk, so we ask all our walkers to raise a minimum of £150 for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The money you raise will help us make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

We'll be sending plenty of tips along the way to help you reach your target! So don’t forget to add our email address, [email protected], to your contacts.

What’s the best way to reach my fundraising target?

The best way to get sponsored is by creating an online fundraising page using JustGiving. It’s the easiest way let your friends and family know how they can support you.

We’ve got plenty of handy tips on how to make the most of your JustGiving page on our fundraising page - take a look!

If you have any problems with setting up your page please get in touch with the JustGiving support team, email [email protected].

Where can I get a paper sponsorship form?

Although we recommend setting up an online fundraising page using JustGiving, if you’d like to use a paper sponsorship form you can email us at [email protected]

I have offline sponsorship, where do I send it?

Please send it to: The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Downs Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM2 5PT. Please include your name and if applicable your team name so we can link it to your fundraising.

Is there a fundraising deadline?

Yes, please make sure that you’ve collected and handed in all your sponsorship money by 21 June 2019
