Runners cross the Tyne Bridge

Why run for Independent Age?

Whether you’re a complete beginner or you’ve been running for years, we’ve got the perfect running event for you. At Independent Age, our aim is to reduce poverty, tackle inadequate care and combat loneliness. Last year, over 1 million people accessed our services.

With your help, we could make sure that many more vulnerable older people get the vital information, advice and support they need to stay independent and live well.  

Whether you're just starting out or are a seasoned marathon runner, Independent Age have places in several running events, and we would love you to join #TeamIA!

Together, we can make a huge difference. 

How will we support you?

Whether you have an Independent Age charity place or your own ballot place, by running for us you’ll receive fantastic support from the moment you sign up all the way until you cross that finish line. We will provide you with:

  • An Independent Age technical running vest with marker to write your name
  • A well-deserved certificate, totalling the amount you kindly raised for IA
  • Fundraising and training support from the Independent Age Events team
  • Cheer points and support along the route
