Interfaith Fun Run

Join over 300 runners from London’s diverse faith & belief communities and fundraise for local causes by Running for a Connected London- the capital’s first ever Interfaith Fun Run.

Programme Overview

Taking place on 30th August at StoneX Park, Barnet this family-friendly event is about having fun, challenging yourself and raising money for London’s amazing charities.

We know how vital London’s grassroots charities are and, with the support of Maccabi GB and the Greater London Lieutenancy, have created a great fundraising opportunity – as well as a platform to make sure your cause is seen and heard.

Above all, our Fun Run is an amazing opportunity to send a message to London, and the UK – we are on the side of friendship regardless of differences. We are on the side of community regardless of division.

As well as a 1k, a 5k and a 10k untimed Fun Run there will be an afternoon of performances, games, activities for families and food!
