on the day

Head to Potter’s Fields Park, London, on Tuesday 19 September. You’ll be allocated a wave with a staggered arrival time, starting from 6.00pm. We can’t wait to cheer you and your fellow runners over the finish line and see you wear your finisher’s medal

your support

Your support has never been more vital
One in four children in the UK live in poverty.
All children have big dreams, but not every child gets the opportunities they need to thrive in school.

Children living in poverty only have half the chance of fulfilling their potential at school than their wealthier classmates. You can change this by signing up and showing your support with Run the River. Help power the potential in our young people by fundraising or donating to support the pupils who need it the most. 

Take part in Run the River and pledge your support to help the poorest school children

You can donate directly to the Run the River 2023 JustGiving Campaign below. With your help, we can ensure all children can have the future of their choice.
