Virtual Event - Take on Run 31 from wherever you are!
"I took part in Run 31 in January 2021 - I genuinely didn’t think I’d manage to complete it as I hadn’t run in ages, let alone complete the challenge early! The Facebook Group really kept me inspired and motivated throughout"
What is Run 31? Run 31 miles, your way, this January (or start your 31 days from the day you sign up!). You can complete the challenge in a way that works for you and your level of fitness; whether that’s by running a mile a day, or a couple of miles several times a week.
Run around the block or take a more scenic route through your local park. Or if you don’t fancy venturing out, why not hop onto a treadmill?
Kickstart the new year whilst raising vital funds to support our life-saving work.
Can I take part if I’m not on Facebook? Yes, you can. Simply download this tracker to keep track of your mileage and download our sponsorship form and paying-in instructions.
