the rain­bow run

This winter, we’ve joined forces with run­ning club and men­tal health sup­port group Run Talk Run to bring you a com­munity chal­lenge like no oth­er. In Janu­ary, our com­munit­ies will be com­ing togeth­er to take on The Rain­bow Run — a 50km ultramara­thon through the streets of Lon­don to raise money for NHS Char­it­ies Togeth­er.

Run Talk Run is an inclus­ive run­ning group that aims to make run­ning and men­tal health sup­port less intim­id­at­ing and more access­ible and The Rain­bow Run is a chance to bring our com­munit­ies togeth­er at a time when men­tal health con­cerns are most repor­ted, to chal­lenge ourselves, and to raise money for a great cause!

The cost of the event is £35. Of this, £20 will go straight to NHS Char­it­ies Togeth­er. The remain­ing £15 will cov­er the cost of your spe­cial eco-friendly event tech­nic­al t-shirt.

Check out the Inform­a­tion pack below for full details.

The route

The route begins at Kew Bridge and fin­ishes in The Regent’s Park, cov­er­ing 50km of London’s streets and trails. There will be four check­points situ­ated approx­im­ately every 10km and you can begin and fin­ish at whichever check­point you like.

Our scen­ic jour­ney will take in some of the city’s most fam­ous land­marks, includ­ing Rich­mond Park, Bat­ter­sea Park, Tower Bridge, Buck­ing­ham Palace, Hyde Park and The Mall. Click on the image below to view an enlarged ver­sion of the map.
