Run for charity

In 2018 our runners raised the amazing sum of more than £4.2 million for charities and good causes across the UK and worldwide.

Without their hard work, training and dedication many charities would find it difficult to do their vital work.

We can't think of a better way to crown your finish line glory than knowing your tired limbs have helped raise money for those in need.
