Last year was a fantastic weekend at the London Marathon for CAFOD. Our team  included runners of all ages, who travelled from many different parts of the country for the race. The pre race pasta party on Saturday and post race reception near the marathon finish were great opportunities to meet, encourage and thank CAFOD runners in person, with one runner, Sarah, telling us "The whole experience of running for CAFOD has made this one of the most memorable days of my life!"

If you have any questions, please email us at or give the events team a ring on 020 7095 5329.
