Palace for Life Foundation: Marathon March

WMP Creative have been tasked since 2018 with delivering the Palace for Life Foundation’s Marathon March, an annual charity walk that aims to raise vital funds for the Crystal Palace FC charity.

Palace for Life tasked WMP with delivering an all-new route for 2022, maintaining the challenge of walking a marathon whilst delivering an improved participant experience. WMP designed a route which took in plenty of open green spaces, iconic London landmarks like the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, and utilised the clubs Selhurst Park Stadium as a start and finish venue. With a number of the club’s players making some “appearances” on the route, along with a half-time “team talk” from manager Patrick Viera, the event smashed its fundraising target and continued the positive work and relationship between Palace for Life and WMP.

“WMP are an absolute pleasure to work with, providing a highly professional service which has contributed enormously to the continued success & growth of our Marathon March and Bike events. The whole team combine their extensive event experience with a real personal touch to make things look easy, despite the many logistical challenges – we always look forward to working with them!”
