How to get involved in a sponsored run

Lacing up your trainers for a sponsored run is a brilliant way to raise money for PHA UK – with more runs than ever scheduled up and down the UK.

From 5km fun runs, to marathons and 10km runs in between, we are always keen to know what people are doing to help raise much needed funds and awareness for PHA UK.

Obstacle races are also becoming increasingly popular, with many people challenging themselves with events like Tough Mudder. It is even possible to take on your own sponsored run by mapping out a route and roping in some friends to join you.

If you are new to running, don’t be put off. Many local parks host free organised 5km runs every Saturday, which are great for all abilities, or the fantastic ‘Couch to 5k’ free online training programme takes you from the sofa to three miles, with a step-by-step training programme that takes just nine weeks. It’s available via the website.
