Already have your own place?

If you’ve already secured a spot, you can use your place to help fight homelessness by running and fundraising for Shelter. We’d love for you to join the team – get in touch below.


Want to help out at this event? Sign up to volunteer.

All our fundraisers get the very best from us, including:

  • A Shelter technical running top

  • Training plans created by our running partners Let’s Get Running

  • Personal trainer support

  • Fundraising advice

  • We’ll be there to cheer you on

  • Post-race reception (a hero’s welcome & refreshments)

We can't fight homelessness without your help

With the support of fundraisers like you, last year we helped 10,324 people and households in London alone through our helpline and face-to-face services.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.

Huge thanks to you all for the support on the course and at the end. I had a great day, and really loved being part of #TeamShelter
