Charity running events | Run for charity | Action Medical Research | Action Medical Research

Run for charity with Action Medical Research. Long distance running is an excellent challenge as well as being a great way to keep fit, and doing it for charity provides the feel good factor that comes from knowing that your effort is counting towards making a real difference for children around the world.

We have places in the world's greatest and best-known events and races. As part of a team, you will receive fantastic training and fundraising support, regular updates and access to post-race events. We are with you every step of the way from training to your big day.

Each year we have places in the Virgin Money London Marathon. When you take part in London’s premier run to raise money for Action Medical Research, you can look forward to a catered post-race reception which also includes a massage to ease your aches and pains.
