Clough Taylor People’s Run (Feb & March)

This year, we are proud to be one of the charities at the Clough Taylor People’s Run, so if you live near Nottingham or Derby, or fancy a roadtrip, you can take part in a 5k or 10k race in support of Street Child United.

The events are taking place in Nottingham on the 26th February and Derby on the 12th March, and we would love to see you there.


Do your own thing

The great news is that you can run for us in any event you choose! There are runs, triathlons, walks and bike rides all over the country, so if you’re looking for a new challenge in 2017, you could sign up for an event and ask your friends and family to sponsor you to take part.

Our top challenges include:

Run Hackney on April 30
The Great Bristol 10K on May 7
The Royal Parks Half Marathon on October 8

If you are taking on the almighty Virgin Money London Marathon, you could make Street Child United your nominated charity, and raise much needed funds to support street children across the world.

There are literally hundreds of local races – look on to find your next challenge.
