What is the 20 Million Yard Golf Marathon?

The 20 Million Yard Golf Marathon is a record-breaking series of golf marathons held on the same day across the UK. Participating teams will challenge themselves and their friends to play four different courses in a day while raising vital funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.

While your foursome tees off on the first course of the day (approx 4.00am on one of the longest days of the year) three other teams will be starting on three different local courses. Each local marathon therefore will consist of up to 16 golfers playing the same four courses over the day. We want 50 golf marathons across the country, meaning 800 golfers are playing 200 courses throughout the UK on the same day. This is a total of 57,600 holes of golf covering over 20 million yards!

How do I get involved?

There are three levels of involvement:

Local Champion - act as an organiser for your local golf marathon. This will involve liasing with golf courses, recruiting up to four teams of players and drumming up press coverage, collate your local marathons reults and liase with us at MDC.

Golfer - for those of you who just want to turn up and play.

Supporter - if your don't fancy the challenge but still want to get involved in this once-in-a-life-time event you can still help us make this event the biggest we possibly can by helping secure press coverage, liasing with golf courses or simply making a donation.
