Running events

Charity running events – get your place with St John Ambulance

Donors, sponsors, pavement pounders – every pound you fundraise helps save lives.

Our dedicated volunteers are out in force at hundreds of events, including the Royal Parks Half Marathon and Virgin Money London Marathon, so be sure to give them a cheer on your way through! And if you run into trouble, they’re ready to pick you up, dust you down and get you over the finish line.

Take your pick of running events from the calendar or browse events based on distance. Remember – if the event you want to do isn’t listed here, please get in touch. We’d still love to have you on our team.
