Running Events

Running events have become an integral part of fundraising recently and Brainwave has benefitted from many hardy souls who have gritted their teeth and pulled on a pair of trainers to run in all sorts of events for us. Over recent years many £1,000s have been raised by enthusiasts over distances from 3 miles to full marathons and we are keen to keep promoting these fantastic events to those who wish to raise money on our behalf.

We regularly acquire places in a number of running events which we can fill when people apply to us for them, but we also encourage those interested to apply on their own behalf; so do go ahead if you feel the urge!
