Event information

Run through London's greenest borough, taking in beauty spots including Kew Gardens, Hampton Court and the River Thames.

No matter which race you choose, when you cross the finish line you'll achieve more than your goal.

Together, we'll reach everyone, everywhere with life-changing clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Welcome to Team WaterAid!

What you'll get from us

To help support all our runners in the lead up to race day we’ve teamed up with the experts, RunningWithUs, to provide you with a special training package. As a member of our team you’ll receive:

  • A bespoke training plan – suitable for your level of experience
  • Email helpline – ask a coach or physio your training, race, nutrition or injury questions
  • Twitter and Facebook ask-the-coach services and webinar sessions
  • A WaterAid running vest or technical t-shirt

We also provide a fundraising pack to help you meet your targets, fundraising and event resources like balloons, collecting tins and banners (upon request) and regular newsletters with support and advice from our dedicated WaterAid events team.

If you have a question or would like to chat about joining Team WaterAid, please get in touch – we'd love to hear from you!

If you’ve bought a WaterAid charity place in an event, we'll ask you to reach a minimum fundraising target. This will cover the cost of the event place and administration fees that WaterAid have to pay, and help provide much needed support to some of the world’s poorest communities.
