Your entry includes a range of free food & drink at regular rest stops, and support from medics, marshals and massage teams.

Why support Independent Age?
The money you raise will support people like Veronica. Veronica is 82 years old and lives in the Southeast of England. She called our Helpline as she was struggling with rising electricity bills. Veronica was relying on extra jumpers when she was cold instead of turning on the heating, to keep down costs.
The Helpline helped Veronica to understand more about the money she was entitled to. Now, Veronica is receiving pension credit. This is a crucial top up for her income.
By fundraising for Independent Age, you will provide a support system for older people going through difficult times.
How will Independent Age support you?
You’ll receive fantastic support from our friendly team from the moment you sign up until you cross that finish line.
We’ll provide you with:
• A free Independent Age technical running vest to wear on race day
• A well-deserved certificate, totalling the amazing amount you raise for us
• Fundraising and training support from our dedicated Events team
