Run Forest Run is back, running for good! Last year Run Forest Run raised over £28,000 during the 3 Peaks Campaign for JAM’s Covid-19 response in Africa. This year they are aiming to raise £40,000 towards JAM’s #zerohunger intervention programmes.
HELP US FILL UP OUR RED BOWLS
We are aiming to raise £40,000 to serve over
125,000 school meals this year.
The challenge this year is simple: Get as many people as possible to run the furthest that they have ever
run before in their lives!
The challenge will have 2 legs:
Rehan Greeff, the leader of the Run Forest Run team, is going to attempt a massive 300km run – a circumnavigation of Greater London, covering the peaks in all 32 boroughs in under 54 hours (which is the current fastest known time).
During the lead up to the solo circumnavigation of London, the Run Forest Run team aims to guide fellow runners to accomplish their life long running goals. The training will culminate in the runners taking on their individual challenges along the same 300km route*, but covering only the distance they signed up for. Runners will all start at the same time, but can choose to start at any of the 32 boroughs’ highest points and run clockwise.
*For UK or international runners, they can attempt their challenge virtually and upload their results
Leading up to the event you can join other participants in your area every Saturday for a local social run as you prepare for your goal. The “Forest Front Yard” Challenge is on the 5th of June 2021, where you can test your progress! The 1st of July is D-day for the solo attempt where Rehan will start at 20:00 and attempt to finish the 300km run by 20:00 on the 3rd of July. The community attempt will start at 08:00, the 3rd of July at the highest point in your chosen borough. Download the Run Forest Run calendar below for more details.

‘A half times two is forty two! Maybe you can do it too?’
‘Respect! You choose how far you want to go!’
