Yorkshire Marathon

Give refugees the fresh start they deserve in the Yorkshire Marathon 2022

Want to make 2022 a year to remember? Join our team of human rights heroes in the Yorkshire Marathon. The Asda Foundation Yorkshire Marathon has been a monster success since day one. Since the inaugural event in 2013, the event has got bigger and bigger.  Every year, thousands of runners of all abilities take to its truly breathtaking course, and you’ll never be far from the locals who will be out in force to cheer you along.

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 £350 sponsorship, and there is a £30 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.
