As the New Year arrives and we start to look at CAFOD events coming up in the Spring, CAFOD supporter Sarah Sanderson tells us why she is ran the London Marathon last year, and why this year it could be you turn to join Team CAFOD.
Spring is here and this year it can be your turn to run a marathon! I’ve been running for a few years now, and I’ve been involved with CAFOD through my local Parish activities, so last year I knew it was time to step it up to marathon level for CAFOD. There was something about the challenge of those 26 miles that I really wanted to achieve this year!
Training sometimes wasn’t easy, and it could be difficult to get out and about on those dark mornings, but it was fantastic to feel myself get fitter as I continued to reach my goals, and the CAFOD events team were always on hand with weekly fundraising ideas and training plans to keep you going and motivated.

The day itself was a great day out, a marathon always gets the crowds out and there were CAFOD staff to join our family and friends. There is also the reception afterward to have some well earned refreshments and a sit down!
The atmosphere on the day was brilliant, but most of all it was the knowledge that our fundraising was making a crucial difference to transforming the lives of others, which made all the training worth it.
CAFOD are now recruiting for places for the Brighton on Sunday 6 April and the Yorkshire Marathon on 12 October and we would love to hear from you!
