The London Marathon is one of the most iconic marathons in the world. The course runs through many famous London districts and past many of the world’s most iconic landmarks… The Tower of London, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and Buckingham Palace, to name just a few.

This year, we are fundraising for ICU (Intensive CareUnit) in CUH.


This is a very specialised area looking after those who are critically ill – when a patient requires intensive treatment and close monitoring.

CUH is one of two designated National Trauma Centres in the country. ICU will require further investment and expansion in future years to accommodate the increased demands.

CUH Charity has secured a small number of guaranteed entries to the London Marathon 2024.

The package will include:

  • Guaranteed 2024 London Marathon race entry

  • Return flights from Cork Airport

  • 3 nights in a 4* hotel

  • Daily breakfasts including a special early breakfast on London Marathon day

  • Private coach transfer to the start from the hotel (runners only)

  • Support team on the ground at all times

The fundraising target is only €2,950 (+ €400 for a single room supplement/ +€25 for travel insurance) and this covers all items outlined above!

Spaces are limited so register now to ensure you secure your place!


Absolutely, but our package only offers the group flights from Cork. If you wish to travel from somewhere else, or at a different time, that will be at your own cost.

As we have a limited amount of space in the hotel, we are unable to accommodate friends and family in the rooms with runners. As so many people want to experience the London Marathon, we want to give that experience to as many people as possible.

As per the registration form, you are responsible for reaching your target. This target was set so we can ensure we raise as much as possible for the ICU Department in CUH.
If you are struggling, please reach out to the CUH Charity team for advice – we are here to help all of you succeed.

Once you have registered and paid your deposit, you will receive an email from iDonate to activate your fundraising page. Check your spam, just in case!
