Power of Running

We believe in the power of running. Our runners share their inspirational stories for taking part in our events, and it’s clear to see: everyone has a story and reason for running. Through our Power of Running campaign, we are bringing to life some of the amazing stories behind the tens of thousands of runners who line up across our start lines each year, like the stories below.

Everyone who signs up to a Great Run series event is a runner, regardless of finish time, and everyone has their own reason for running. What does the power of running mean to you? Tell us about your running story, and you could feature in our campaign.
