About The Marsden March
We started The Marsden March in 2011 and since then, we’ve raised more than £10 million. Every single penny goes towards improving the lives of everyone affected by cancer, in the UK and around the world.
Thousands of people join us every year to walk the 14-mile route, or the shorter 5-mile route on the final leg. You’ll find patients, families, friends of the hospital – even our consultants – all taking part.
When you cross the finish line, there’s a big thank-you party for all our walkers. Listen to bands, unwind in a deckchair, enjoy the BBQ, or simply soak up the amazing atmosphere. You’ve earned it!
Last year, it took me 10 minutes to get out of bed, so walking 14 miles will be a big challenge. It will be an amazing sense of achievement and a great way to say thanks for all the help and support I’ve received.
We start at our hospital in Chelsea, then follow a 14-mile route through London down to our hospital in Sutton.
On the way, you’ll walk along Fulham Road, down Putney High Street, over Wimbledon Common, on to Raynes Park and through King George’s Playing Fields. This is where we join everyone doing the shorter 5-mile walk.
Then we cross Nonsuch Park, past Nonsuch Mansion, and head off to Cheam and Belmont, before arriving for a party at our hospital in Sutton.
How you help
Our walkers may not all be superheroes but they are everyday heroes to cancer patients everywhere.
The money raised by our walkers goes towards the latest in cancer diagnosis, treatment, research and care. From funding trials into radiotherapy technology to training experts in how to use pioneering equipment, you help make it happen.
Whether you want to take part or sponsor someone walking, your support means we can make a difference to the lives of everyone affected by cancer.
