The world in which we live, and run in, is important to us which is why the phrase 'Leave Nothing But Footprints' resonates so well with the running community.
This October sees the return of our 'Leave Nothing But Footprints' virtual run. You can choose your own distance and for this event we have linked up with the Eden Reforestation Project.

Making a difference
We believe that we can make a difference, one step at a time.
The running community can achieve great things and with this in mind, we set ourselves a lofty goal to plant ONE MILLION TREES over the next 5 years through our virtual runs!
Let's start running....and talking.
As always, we'll be on social media chatting, supporting and helping to inspire one another throughout October. We’ll be using #runr and #LNBF on Twitter, Instagram, Strava and Facebook, so come and get involved over on social media.
Happy running and be proud to be a runr.
Everyone who enters our virtual run will receive one of these wonderful medals!
