Welcome to the Shakespeare Marathon and Shakespeare Half Marathon website. The Rotary Club of Statford-upon-Avon have been raising money for charity through this event for over 30 years and it has been awarded BARR gold standard.
Because we use volunteers to organise and run the event and we have some sponsorship, we pride ourselves that less than 40% of your entry fee is spent on our administration and the costs of facilities
The main charity we support is the Shakespeare Hospice, other named charities are Stratford Samaritans, Lifespace and ESH Works. In addition to these there are multiple other charities and good causes that also benefit throughout the year.
