run for nass

We know that at the moment, during the Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic, running can be a wonderful stress-reliever for some, as their permitted daily exercise. If you are running, and would like a goal to aim towards, many autumn races all still currently scheduled to take place on their set dates, although obviously this may change. Assuming the events do go ahead, we’d love to have your support. Or perhaps you could think ahead to 2021 and set yourself a running challenge to raise funds for NASS next year?

Do check out the challenges listed, or look for other running events best suited to you.

Whether you’re a complete beginner, or a seasoned long-distance runner, we can help you find your perfect challenge  and support you all the way to the finish line. If you have any questions at all, please do email us at

We urge you to continue to follow government guidelines around outdoor exercise whilst training.
