The Ballot has now closed. 125,000 applied in just 10 hours.

If you are successful in the ballot when results are announced in October we would love you to join our team and run for The Children’s Society as an own place runner. There isn’t a fundraising target or a registration fee and you will still receive all of the benefits below.

We will support you every step of the way:

  • Online Training Zone with access to route planners, calculators, your own personal trainer and the chance to interact with other runners.
  • Dedicated Events Team to support you and help with any fundraising or training needs
  • Team training day in January with expert guest speakers
  • Running vest, personalised with your name
  • Cheer points along the route to keep you going
  • Post-race party with a well-deserved massage and a goody bag for you as well as refreshments for you and your supporters.
