Run for War Child

Whether it's a 5k dressed as Superman, or a full marathon - we've got a run that's right up your street such as...

Virgin Money London Marathon 2016

26.2 miles for children in war. Have you got what it takes?

London Marathon is happening on 24 April 2016 and we are building a stellar team. We have charity places available & are also interested in people who have entered the ballot and would like to run for us. Please register your interest here.

Royal Parks Half Marathon

This is truly London's greenest distance race, leading you through Hyde Park, Green Park, St James's Park, and Kensington Gardens. 

You'll probably see more London green space in one morning than you would in an entire weekend otherwise. 

Being one of the last events of the running season, this is the perfect opportunity to get a cheeky 13.1 miles in before winter.

Our expert team are here to help you raise the funds which allow us to carry out our vital work.
