Cancer Research Race For Life - Marathon (Lee Valley Park, EN9 1AB - but various meeting points)

This is the big one - the RFL full Marathon. Runners do two laps of a course set out around Lee Valley Park, just north of London. The course is split into four sections, each a similar distance to a normal 10k RFL race - so it's not an overwhelming amount to set up, but plenty of help is needed! We will support this event in conjunction with Hertfordshire 4x4 Response.

The RFL events raise a massive amount for charity - and helping out at these days is somewhere you can make a massive difference with your Land Rover. Be it setting up the course, marshalling a post during the races, ferrying injured ladies around, moving water and supplies - it's good fun and you get to drive round parkland and other public spaces where normally vehicles are simply not allowed.

I'm not guaranteeing it will happen - but in previous years members have even towed out stuck artic lorries...

You do not need the most offroad prepared Land Rover - in fact a standard one on road tyres with plenty of passenger seats is ideal (stand up 110 SW, D2 D3 and D4 owners)!

The only downsides? Yes, course setup does start that early...
