We are delighted to announce our February virtual race, continuing to support small charities.
It isn’t just the events industry that has suffered during these unprecedented past 10 months but also the charity sector. In particular, the smaller more local charities have seen a huge fall in fundraising income and are struggling to stay afloat.
Since the pandemic began almost a year ago, we have raised a huge amount from our charity races and made significant donations to a range of charities. We are incredibly grateful to our running community in supporting these events. Now that the New Year dawns, we would like to continue to support the fantastic work of these amazing charities so that they can continue their work raising awareness and supporting their service users.
February Charity Partner – P.A.I.N – The Painkiller Addiction Information Network.
The Painkiller Addiction Information Network is a new charity with the aim of advancing awareness of addiction to opioid painkiller medications in the UK and globally. Their work supports those with a dependence on prescribed and over-the-counter painkillers, helping to take back control of their lives.
Like many small charities, P.A.I.N has struggled during the pandemic and is in desperate need of funding to be able to continue their work in raising awareness.
Therefore, we are pleased to announce the P.A.I.N Charity Virtual 15k, 10k, 5k & 1k!

· Race dates – 1st February to 28th February 2021 – so you have the whole month to complete your run.
