“I’ve held a senior position in racing for over a decade now and am confident that, during those years, not a week has gone by when a colleague or friend from within the racing community would not have needed the support of Racing Welfare in some form, whether that be following an accident or injury, needing financial assistance or help with their mental health.”

“I am excited to announce that I will be racing in the 2024 London Marathon on Sunday 21st April. My run will be supporting Racing Welfare.

Racing Welfare is a charity organisation owned by my employer The Jockey Club. 
The charity does incredible work supporting mental and physical health, addiction and assistance with housing to name a few of their services.”

“Having worked in racing I have seen the positive impact the charity can have on the lives of racing staff every day. Specifically, Racing Welfare helped with the rehab of a friend after a fall while riding out. I would also really love the opportunity take part in the London marathon, so it would be great to do it to raise money for such a great charity.”

“To run a marathon has always been on my “bucket list”. Having supported a friend at the Dublin Marathon last October. I walked away feeling so inspired and exciting about taking on the challenge. I am so grateuful to everyone who has donated and I cannot wait to do my bit for this wonderful charity.”

I am hugely excited to be running the London Marathon, for such a great charity in Racing Welfare. Having worked within the racing industry since the age of 18. I have seen first hand the great work that Racing Welfare do.  I used the Careers Advice and Training Services via the Racing Welfare website. The service that Racing Welfare provided, helped me secure the role of Trainee Clerk of the Course with the Jockey Club.”


“We wanted to do something to give back and so after our previous plan to run a marathon on the Great Wall had been scuppered by covid when the opportunity to run the London Marathon presented itself we were too mad to miss it.”

“We chose Racing Welfare as the charity to raise funds for. Our new sport is only possible because of the amazing work of the staff behind the scenes, supporting a charity that provides essential welfare to these individuals seems a fitting way to give something back.”

“Racing Welfare leads the provision of human welfare services nationwide. They provide professional guidance and practical help to all those who work in the sport, or in associated professions, whose dedication is vital to the wellbeing of racing.”

“I have worked in horseracing since 2001, it has always been my passion. To be able to give back to the community that has looked after me for so long is an honour. Racing Welfare do some tremendous work supporting all staff across the industry from mental health to housing- including supporting my students with one of my current job roles with the National horseracing college.”

“I’m thrilled to have been given the opportunity to run on behalf of Racing Welfare. A charity very close to my heart, and one that supports each and every dedicated individual in Racing.”
