If you haven’t got a place, you can still get involved and support our runners by joining our cheer station, or by sponsoring them via the JustGiving page.


The 13.1 mile route takes you through Coventry city centre and the countryside beyond. You don’t need to be a seasoned runner to take part – as long as you have the fitness and motivation to finish the course in less than 4 hours, that’s all you need. Participants will receive a finisher’s medal, a premium goody bag, plus a special running t-shirt courtesy of our sponsor  Visit the website for more information about the race.


We are asking all runners to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship, plus a £25 deposit (£125 in total). Our Fundraising Managers will be available to offer help and support with fundraising and training, and there will be some special prizes for the volunteers who raise the most money!


On your marks, get set, GO #TeamOrange!
