Our story

About Run For Heroes

In 2020 we captured the hearts of millions of people across the country asking them to run 5k. We mobilised them to get active and give back to society raising over £7 million for NHS Charities Covid-19 Appeal.

On our journey we learnt the power of communities and how lots of individuals doing something small can create huge positive change.
