How to register your own run

A huge variety of runs of all distances take place across the UK, or even abroad, throughout the year. From 5Ks to 10Ks to marathons, you'll be sure to find one to suit you. You might want to sign up for an organised event, or you could even create your own personal running challenge.

If you're signing up for an organised event, simply register with the organisers, then register with us - letting us know which run you've signed up for.

We'll send you our Mind running vest and lots of fundraising support. And we'll let you know how you can connect with other Mind runners.

How we'll support you

Once you have a confirmed place, and have registered your details with us, we will support you from start to finish.

Register with us and you'll get:

  • a support pack, full of fundraising tips and advice

  • sponsorship forms

  • your own Mind running vest

  • training advice

  • fundraising materials

  • support from our dedicated team

We're committed to treating our supporters with respect and openness. Read our promise to you.

Marathons for the Mind  - running the Tour de France

"My Tour de France started today and there wasn’t a bike in sight. I wasn’t going to be watching or even riding the most famous bike race in the world, I planned to run it."
