Rough Runner

Ready for an awesome obstacle course challenge combining distance running with a variety of game show- inspired obstacles (think gladiators, Ninja Warrior and Total Wipe-out!) along the way? Then don’t miss out! With multiple Rough Runner races across the UK throughout April - October 2018, there is sure to be a race that suits you!

Hampton Court Half

This is the only Half Marathon to be held at this famous and historic royal home. Hampton Court Palace is one of only two surviving palaces that King Henry VIII owned. The race will start inside the gates of Hampton Court Palace and finish in its beautiful gardens. A truly scenic backdrop to sprint, jog or even a walk! Join us Sunday March 18th 2018!

Steve's challenge

Steve's son was born with a unilateral cleft lip & palate. Steve participated in Ride London 2017 to give children around the world the opportunity to receive the life changing surgery and care that Oscar received in the UK.

Bucket Collection Blast!

Liz Pinchen, a dedicated fundraiser and Burketeer, had a blast at a bucket collection in Cambridge last month. She took to the city streets spreading awareness and raising over £200 for Operation Smile. Now that's something to smile about!

Ollie's Clipper Challenge

A year ago I was looking for a life changing challenge, to push me to my limit in a variety of ways….enter The Clipper Round the World Yacht Race. To really make the most of this adventure, I want to raise money for a wonderful charity!
