Run for us

Thank you for your interest in running for Kicks Count! You don’t have to be Mo Farrah to participate in a running event, there are events all across the UK and you can take things at your own pace. From marathons to fun runs and muddy assault courses, there really is something to suit every ability.

Below you can find a list of some popular events taking place across the UK this year.  If you choose to take on the challenge of any of these events, thank you, we will support you all the way.  Not only will we send you a free high-quality breathable running top, you will also have a dedicated contact, Tracy, who will provide support, materials, ideas and encouragement!

You can of course sign up to any other run that is happening locally to you. We’d be delighted to send you a running vest if you’re raising funds for Kicks Count, please just secure your place then complete the event registration form so we have your details.
