Running a race for charity is a fantastically rewarding experience from start to finish. Not only does it keep you fit, it boosts your motivation, gives you a purpose and helps raise awareness and important funds for the charity.
From running a marathon alongside Loch Ness to getting covered head-to-toe in mud at Tough Mudder, there’s an event for all types of runner to get involved in. With charity runs starting from the 5K distance all the way up to a marathon, your ability doesn’t matter - it’s your drive to raise money for charity that does.
