We have taken part in Windsor Half Marathon for a number of years, and in 2016 we took part in the Richmond Running Festival. Being involved with a running event is always a highlight of our year, as it’s great to meet our supporters in person and work together to support SHINE’s education projects.

We’re in the process of looking into events for next year, so do get in touch with the email below if you’re interested. Or if you’d like to take part in another event, we’re very happy to support you. Why not grab a team of friends and colleagues to run, cycle, or climb with? We’ll send you t-shirts and info on the impact SHINE makes in children’s education, so you can start an effective campaign.

If you’d still like to run in a team, but prefer a more flexible goal than taking part in an organised event, it’s worth checking out parkrun. Parkrun are free runs that takes place in parks all over the country, as often as every weekend, to help get people running. All you have to do is find a park that’s hosting it near you, register your details, and you’ll join other runners and be timed just like an organised event. Once you’ve done this get in touch with us with the email below, and we’ll send you as many race packs as you need!
