Double Marathon Challenge 2024

One week, two marathons. 52 miles for 52 charities. This is not going to be easy!

Physically, this is going to be the hardest challenge I've undertaken to date - running two full marathons, 52 miles, just 7 days apart will certainly be tough. I had a year off in 2023, under strict instructions from my doctor following my eye surgery - but now, fully healed, I'm already training to conquer this huge challenge. 

What will get me through each and every step is knowing that the money is going to fund amazing small charities and important community groups that undertake vital work across the constituency. It's my way of trying to support the brilliant men and women who do so much for the people I represent. 

My goal is clear - to break the £100,000 mark for local North Norfolk charities and community groups, which will be the accumulation of money raised since my first marathon in 2021.

Both times I've done this in the past, I've been absolutely blown away by the generosity of the people of North Norfolk - it's heartening to see. To even be in a position to try and break £100,000 is an incredible thing, thank you so much to all who support me in my charitable work.


To help support my push to break £100,000, you can either follow the link below to my JustGiving page, or send a cheque to my office, Tudor House, Grammar School Road, North Walsham, NR28 9JH - all cheques must be made out to the Norfolk Community Foundation, the umbrella charity handling the funds for me. Full details can be found by following the link below. This can be done with no stamp necessary by using my FREEPOST address. Just pop a cheque in the envelope and write FREEPOST DUNCAN BAKER. The cheque must be payable to the Norfolk Community Foundation who will professionally handle the money.

For now, I just want to know which charities to run for. Please nominate your favorite local charity or community group below. There are a couple of rules, just to make sure the process is fair, which I've listed below. All the money raised will be equally shared between the 52 chosen charities. We will hold a prize draw to pick the lucky winners! 


1) Must be a charity, community interest company or community group that undertakes work in North Norfolk or for the people of North Norfolk.

2) Must have an official bank account, named for the charity or community group.

3) If a charity, must be registered with the charity commission.
