We’re sorry to say that along with a number of events, The Great Midlands Fun Run has had to be postponed until 20 September due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. It’s especially frustrating if you’ve been training hard or looking forward to your fundraising event.

We’re as gutted as you are that it won’t be able to go ahead just yet, but we want you to know that we’ll still be on hand to support you through your fundraising journey, so that even during this uncertain time, your super efforts won’t go to waste. 

You can read more from the event organisers here.


The 8.5 mile Great Midlands Fun Run on 20 September is not a race, it’s a fun event for people of all ages and abilities. As an entrant you are encouraged to run for a charity and we’d love it if you would consider running for us. 

At the 2019 event nearly 100 of you took part in the event, raising over £15,000 for the sick kids in our care.
