Run for a better world for children

Grab your trainers and get ready to reach an impressive new personal record while helping to build a better world for children. Running is a popular way to encourage the support of your friends, family and community to champion a cause that matters to you. The money you raise will help us deliver vital support through our dedicated programmes such as vaccines, life-saving therapeutic food and education in over 190 countries.

Ways to get involved

1. Secure your ballot (own) place

To join Team UNICEF in any other running event, you’ll need to secure your own ballot place directly with the organisers of the event.

2. Get in touch

Let us know about your place by emailing us at [email protected] or on 0300 330 5580. We’ll send you a UNICEF branded running vest and support to help kickstart your fundraising.

3. Set up your online fundraising page

While you train and prepare for the big day, take the time to set up your fundraising page and let your friends and family know how to support you. Check out our guidance on how to create your page.

4. Get organised

Make sure you have read through all communications from the event organisers. If you have friends and family cheering for you on the day, send them a copy of the route map (this is usually sent by the event organisers). Most importantly, get plenty of rest and remember to have fun!
