London Marathon 2021

As the world’s most well known run, there really is no other event like the London Marathon. Use your place in this iconic run to make a difference in the lives of children and young adults across Sussex with life limiting conditions.

Marathon Megastar
Chestnut Tree House Running Team

Be a marathon megastar for Chestnut Tree House in 2021!

Starting in the beautiful Greenwich Park, the London Marathon takes in the most iconic sights the capital has to offer.

Fom Canary Wharf and Big Ben to St Paul’s and Buckingham Palace as you head for that famous finish line along Pall Mall. The London Marathon really is an experience that will live with you forever.

Keeping you COVID safe

The organisers will have more details about their COVID safety measures as the event gets closer. We’ll look to share them here as we know more, but for now keep an eye on the London Marathon website for the latest information.

Running with Team Chestnut

Use your place to run for Team Chestnut and help local children and families who know they don’t have long together have the chance to live life to the full and say goodbye in the way that is right for them.

At Chestnut Tree House, kids can be astronauts for the day in the multi-sensory room, discover creepy crawlies on a woodland walk, or form their very own pop group in the music room.

It is a place where parents can just be parents, and not carers, and where siblings have people to talk to who understand.
