Leeds Half Marathon

Give refugees the fresh start they deserve in the Leeds Half Marathon 2022

Want to make 2022 a year to remember? Join our team of human rights heroes in the Leeds Half Marathon. As Yorkshire's biggest, loudest and possibly proudest half marathon, this much-loved run raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity every year and often attracts around 7,500 runners to the city streets.

As part of Team Refugee Action you will receive the very best support, including:

  • A branded Refugee Action running vest or t-shirt
  • Expert fundraising advice and support from our friendly team
  • An insight into the work your fundraising is making happen
  • Access to fundraising resources, including our fundraising guide, branded bunting and stickers

Runners are asked to raise a minimum £300 sponsorship, and there is a £10 fee to register.

 

Why fundraise for Refugee Action?

Refugee Action has been welcoming refugees with open arms since 1981. We exist to support refugees and people seeking asylum to rebuild their lives in the UK. Every day, our frontline staff are helping people to escape homelessness, find work and build a new life for themselves. And our campaigns are fighting for a fairer future for refugees, challenging laws and systems that stop refugees and people seeking asylum from thriving.

This work is only possible because of people like you. With every mile that you run, you will be changing the lives of people seeking safety here in the UK. By taking on this challenge, you are giving refugees hope for the future.
