Running events

To secure your place in a run you will have to get your place directly from the race organisers. Once you have done this get in touch with our Challenges Team and we will give you the support, advice and cheers you need to reach the finish line! 

There are many races up and down the country that you can get involved in for charity. Here's our diary of a few top running events coming up.

So, you’ve been awarded a place in this year’s London Marathon through the national ballot (congratulations!), and you are immersed in a rigorous training schedule from now until raced day.

Do you need an added incentive to throw on those trainers and run hundreds more practice miles? Here at SOS Children, we guarantee that running on our behalf will make it an even more rewarding experience for you!
