Why choose the Big Fun Run?

The Big Fun Run is a series of 5k untimed runs staged within scenic settings throughout the UK from July to October. There are 18 locations to choose from, all you need to do is find the one closest to you! Whether you run on your own, with friends or family, this is a great event to have some fun whilst raising vital funds for charity.

Why run it for Unicef?

Your fundraising through the Big Fun Run can make a huge difference for children. With your support, Unicef can protect millions of vulnerable children around the world.

Did you know that £200 in sponsorship could provide a month’s supply of life-saving peanut paste to bring 8 malnourished children back to health?

Got your own place?

If you’ve already got your own place in the Big Fun Run, we’d love for you to fundraise for us. There is no minimum fundraising commitment; we would only ask you to raise what you can.
