Rock/pop icon donates his track ‘Running Together’ as the unofficial anthem as tomorrow’s London Marathon and encourages all to ‘stick together’ during these unusual times.
Marty was inspired earlier this year, after attending a charity fun run, “Everyone was together, working hard for the same cause,” comments Marty, “and I felt compelled to go home and create an upbeat fun track that would be a perfect boost to anyone running. Little did I know that lockdown was on the horizon at that time and this song has become even more poignant as we’ve needed to metaphorically ‘run together’, even when we’ve been forced to be apart.”
“So I wish everyone in tomorrow’s London Marathon all the best of luck, those in London and those running in their own separate towns and cities. No matter what, we’re all behind you and you’re all running together.’
‘Running Together’ is the title track taken from Marty Wilde’s new album ‘Running Together’ out now on Pushka Records/Right Track Universal

Marty Wilde MBE, originally born Reginald Smith. From mid-1958 to the end of 1959, Wilde was one of the leading British rock and roll singers, along with Tommy Steele and Cliff Richard. Wilde's backing group was called the Wildcats. Marty is father to pop stars Kim Wilde, Ricky Wilde and Roxanne Rizzo, and Marty Jr. Like many of his contemporaries, Wilde continued to perform in nostalgia tours in the UK and beyond. In 2007, he celebrated 50 years in the business with another UK tour which featured his youngest daughter Roxanne Wilde, and the issue of a compilation album, Born To Rock And Roll – The Greatest Hits. It included a duet with Kim Wilde of Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word", which was released as a promotional only single. The tour culminated in a concert recorded at the London Palladium, and reunited the original remaining Shadows, Hank Marvin, Big Jim Sullivan, Bruce Welch, Brian Bennett, and Brian Locking, and also appearing with the Shadows that night, was the original bass player, the late and great Jet Harris. Wilde has also written lyrics for many hits across the years, details can be found here: https://
