The Lancaster Football Marathon 2016, an event to support a national charity called Tackle Africa, and now in it's 5th year in Lancaster.
Tackle Africa is a great charity which delivers HIV education for schoolchildren across Africa through football training camps - more info here: http://tackleafrica.org/. The charity raises funds every year through it's summer football marathons in London (huge event with 64 teams), Jersey, Brighton and Lancaster.
The event format is a sponsored non-stop 12 hour football tournament from 8am to 8pm. It's a gruelling but fantastic day enjoyed by lots of local footballers aged 16+, all played in a great friendly spirit. More event info for you here:
