Choose your distance - take on a 5km or 10km route around one of the largest urban parks in Europe. 

Aim for a person best or time your time, either way, by tying your laces and clocking up the kilometres for Mencap you're helping people with a learning disability live the life they choose.

The routes are suitable for all ages and fitness levels to run, jog or walk.

If you have a disability your supporter can run with you for free, and there are wheelchair places available too.

Do you have kids? There is also a family friendly 1km run for you to enjoy together - email us to sign them up for £5!

Being part of #TeamMencap, you'll receive: 

  • top-notch fundraising support from the Events team
  • regular updates about the run and Mencap
  • a bright Mencap t-shirt to run in and keep as a souvenir
  • big cheers to encourage you on race day
  • a glossy medal to add to your collection!
