Covid 19 - At The School Run, we are offering the option to donate to NHS Charities Together on all of our challenges - we've donated over £1800 so far!

At The School Run, we motivate and inspire both young and old to get active by joining one of our hugely popular virtual challenges.  We organise both individual challenges and school competitions. Whatever is your motivation for taking part, we have a challenge for you.

So how does it work? Check out all the details below.

Individual Challenges

Our individual virtual challenges are open to all members of the school community, young and old. Throughout the year we run a number of fantastic challenges with different distances that you can register for. You then have a set time to complete the distace and, if you successful, we send you one of our awesome medals as a reward for all your hard work. We also send out personalised certificates which is great for younger runners to take back into school.

School Challenges

Our school/challenges are great ways of encouraging pupils to get active. Each term we organise a number of virtual challenges and competitions, all at great prices. It's a great way to spend a small part of your Sports Premium money - rewarding and motivating young people for their efforts.

We are supporting the NHS Charities Together by offering all our customers the option to round up their medal purchase and therefore donate to this brilliant charity. Please support it if you can and help raise money during these really uncertain times.

Since March 2020, we have raised over £1800 which is simply fantastic. Thank you to everyone for your support.

Exciting News!

We are extremely excited and proud to announce that The School Run has recently received a business boost from Retail Entrepreneur Theo Paphitis.   In early April 2021, we tweeted Theo about The School Run during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his near half a million Twitter followers.  

Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK.  My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish The School Run every success.”
