Dear Runners of 2023. I am very pleased to let you know that you have helped raise £16932.56. We were also very lucky to have received a further £5207 from other donations and sponsors. After deductions for unavoidable costs this will be distributed to local charities and groups. I will advise, once this has been decided, where your fees went. Thank you on behalf of the Rotary Club Farnham Weyside

Want to Fundraise? Have you got a cause that’s dear to you? Farnham Pilgrim Marathon or Half Marathon would be an excellent platform for you to raise funds. We are happy to support groups or individuals in raising money for charity. This year we will be highlighting local charities such as the ones detailed below, all of whom are in need of fundraising.

The Woodlarks Centre in Lower Bourne Farnham (www.thewoodlarkscentre.org) is a Residential Care Home for Adults with physical disabilities. They range in age from 21 to 80. The Woodlarks Centre always have a waiting list and no spare rooms. They have recently applied and been granted planning permission to extend the building to accommodate eight very much needed new bedrooms.

The Simon Trust is a local charity supporting young adults in Surrey with severe autism and complex needs. We mainly support ten young people at a care home in Alfold, near Cranleigh, providing the “extra essentials” that they need to give them a more meaningful life. We are keen to provide them with facilities that will enhance both their physical and mental health – we have recently installed a 400 metre cycle track at their home which means that they have somewhere to go with their carer, and let off steam in a safe, enclosed environment, to sit, walk, cycle or fly a kite.  Our next aim is to build them a wooden pergola, to give them some shade for when it’s hot so that they can spend more time in the great outdoors. 

If you would like to run the Pilgrim Half or Full Marathon for The Simon Trust, please email thesimontrust.org@gmail.com  – we will provide you with a nice bright blue technical running vest, with our logo and personalised with your name.  We would love your support!

Farnham Pilgrim Marathon ( or Half Marathon) has been described as possibly one of the prettiest trail Events in the UK. It is set to be one of the “must-do” events of the year again! The route is equally challenging but rewarding after all it is the Surrey Hills! The Farnham Pilgrim was awarded a trophy for the “Best New Event” after its inaugural running in 2010. Since that date it has been consistently highly-rated by participants.

This is no ordinary Trail marathon, Its more of a Pilgrimage taking the Pilgrims way and North downs Way, passing 5 churches, an abbey, 2 manor houses, Numerous ponds, rivers, old mills, vineyards, even Llamas on the Marathon course! with stunning scenery. It is a unique, bespoke event with the option of a Half Marathon Run, which is challenging but equally beautiful.

The Marathon halfway point, reaches the amazing St.Marthas church. Set in the beautiful Surrey hills, passing across the beautiful Pewley Down and one mile Path.
