We have charity places in a number of running events across the county. If you don’t find something here that takes your fancy, you can also secure your own place in your chosen event; we have had runners take part in the runs all across the country in aid of our work.

Our charity is charged £158 for a full marathon participant, £77 for a half marathon participant, £42 for a 10k participant, £25 for a 5k participant and £18 for a junior entry. Therefore, we need to ensure that our costs are covered before approving your place.

Alternatively, you can enter the festival as an individual entrant and choose to raise as much or as little for Forest Holme as you like. We will still support you in the same way by providing you with a fundraising pack and an official Forest Holme t-shirt or running vest.
