This year our official charity partner is Macmillan Cancer Support
Need some motivation to get you over the finish line?

A Macmillan running vest, merchandise and fundraising pack
Regular e-newsletters and support from our Facebook group
A reason to run – support people living with cancer
We’re doing whatever it takes.
But without your help we can’t support everyone who needs us.
Running is one of the most inclusive sports there is and we want to hear about your experiences!
Do you run for charity, to keep physically fit and look after your mental health or just because you love it and you can? If you’ve got a story to share, we’d love to hear it.
