From the major high-profile races such as the Virgin London Marathon and the BUPA Great North Run, to the more suburban atmosphere of the Wilmslow Half Marathon and the Richmond 10K, Headway supporters have raised thousands of pounds to help our work.

Many cities and towns in the UK - and around the world - have their own marathons, half marathons and 10K running events.

Runners World is a very useful website that gives details of hundreds of upcoming races, how to enter, details of the course and runners comments. It also gives valuable advice on training for your event.

Headway has guaranteed places available in some of the UK's biggest annual running events, including The Virgin London Marathon which takes place in April.

Whether you are a seasoned runner or someone who wants to achieve a personal goal, contact us if you would like to participate in a running event to raise funds for Headway. We can provide you with lots of fundraising ideas, a sponsorship pack and a Headway running vest.

We hope you can help us whilst getting fit and healthy, and having fun! We will help you every step of the way.
