Amsterdam Marathon

Give refugees the fresh start they deserve in the Amsterdam Marathon 2024

Want to make 2024  a year to remember? Join our team of humanity heroes in the Amsterdam Marathon.

Set off in Amsterdam's Olympic stadium, make your way through the passage under the Rijksmuseum, run the kilometres along side the Amstel and the round through the Vondelpark. That's all your sightseeing for the day done!

As part of Team Refugee Action you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest or t-shirt
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team
  • An insight into the work your fundraising is making happen
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting and stickers

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £400 sponsorship, and there is a £25 fee to register. We will be with you every step of the way with fundraising tips and inspirational stories of our work.

Why fundraise for Refugee Action?

Refugee Action has been welcoming refugees with open arms since 1981. We exist to support refugees and people seeking asylum to rebuild their lives in the UK. Every day, our frontline staff are helping people to escape homelessness, find work and build a new life for themselves. And our campaigns are fighting for a fairer future for refugees, challenging laws and systems that stop refugees and people seeking asylum from thriving.

This work is only possible because of people like you. With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. By taking on this challenge, you are giving refugees hope for the future.
