Run for our charity

Due to the pandemic, many running events understandably had to be cancelled during 2020.

In 2021, as the UK cautiously starts lifting the lockdown restrictions, some races are taking place either virtually or at a later date.

APS Support UK has places that guarantee entry for runners in the following running events in 2021, but you are also very welcome to take part in any race by gaining your own independent place.

Once you have secured a place either via our charity or by yourself, and you are ready to start fundraising, we have our own Just Giving section where you can set up your personalised fundraising site for free; we are also happy to send you good old-fashioned sponsorship forms and any APS leaflets if that helps with your fundraising.

Every runner will receive a free APS Support UK running vest - just let us know which size you need (S/M/L/XL).

We currently have guaranteed places for:
 

  • The Virtual Vitality London 10,000 being held at any time during the summer half term week: Saturday 29 May to Sunday 6 June 2021.
  • The Vitality London 10,000K has been postponed for 2021, and this event, the Virtual Vitality London 10,000, is in its place.
  • The registration fee is just £10 and we ask that you try to raise at least £100 if possible.
  • This new 2021 event allows you to run (or walk, or jog!) your own 10km route at any time during the summer half-term week: Saturday 29 May to Sunday 6 June 2021.
  • Last year, the first-ever virtual Vitality London 10,000 saw almost 11,000 participants enjoying the freedom of running for their heads and their hearts from wherever they were in the world. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to #CelebrateYou this year.

If you are interested in taking part in this virtual run, please email us and we will guide you through the registration process.

 

  • The ASICS London 10K being held on Sunday 25th July 2021.
  • Registration is £20 and as places are limited we ask that you try to raise £150 sponsorship money if possible.
  • This is the world’s greatest road race run and fantastic if you want to cram some quality sight-seeing into your race.
  • The event winds through the heart of London and you will run past many of London’s historic landmarks. Starting at Hyde Park Corner, the route takes you past Trafalgar Square and St Paul’s Cathedral to Tower Bridge, before returning alongside the River Thames.

If you are interested in this 'real-life' event, please email us so we can guide you through the registration process.

 

  • The registration fee is £30 and, as places are so limited, we ask that you try to raise at least £300 if possible.
  • With sun, sea and a spectacular race, the Brighton Marathon has become one of the UK’s top running events and already has 12,000 entries, with the registration now closed to individual runners.

If you are interested in taking on this very popular marathon, please email us and we will guide you through the registration process. Please note that all participants need to be registered by Thursday 12th August 2021.

 

  • The Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon being held on Sunday 3rd October 2021.

  • On Sunday 3 October 2021, 50,000 runners will have the chance to be a part of the biggest marathon ever staged anywhere in the world. General entry into the Virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon is now sold out, so the only way to be a part of the world's biggest-ever marathon is to secure a charity place..
  • The virtual Virgin Money London Marathon offers participants the opportunity to take on the world’s greatest marathon from 00:00:00 to 23:59:59BST. You can do it from home, or wherever you are, on a course of your choice. 

If you are interested in taking part in this famous marathon, please email us and we will help guide you through the registration process.
