Welcome to Minty's Marathon Months

At Charitable Travel, we’re passionate about combining Travel with fundraising and creating a #TravelforGood ethos with our customers.
Minty’s Marathon Months is a great way to showcase incredible destinations around the world where you can run a marathon, relax on the beach, explore a fascinating city, swim in an ocean, or simply chill out.

After the success of the Dubai Challenge earlier in the year, Minty is back with another exciting challenge to keep our mind and body moving. As Mental Health Awareness Week recently demonstrated, getting outside and active in nature has huge benefits for our wellbeing. According to the Mental Health Foundation, more than half of UK adults say that being close to nature improved their mental health.

Take part in the new challenge and raise valuable funds for the Mintridge Foundation – a charity that harnesses the power of positive sporting role models and has been significantly impacted by the closure of schools. Join in and you could be in with a chance of winning four places on a day sail onboard tall ship, Tenacious in 2022, thanks to the Jubilee Sailing Trust!
