Run For Charity

A charity run is typically an organised running event that is designed to help people raise money for a cause or charity that they’re passionate about. When you attend a charity run, people can raise money for the charity of their choice, so running for NYAS is a fantastic option.

Running challenges for charity take place all over the UK, and it’s important to find one that is the right fit for you. Some events will require a sign up fee, and they will vary in length, so it’s important that you check all of the criteria before committing to a race.

We have partnered with Run For Charity so that we can share all of the running challenges for charity that are taking place in your local area and beyond.
