Runs & Walks

Veni, Vidi, Cucurri - we came, we saw, we ran - it's on the back of every single one of our runners vests and is really important to us... Duchenne takes away the chance to run, lets help give it back #maketime

Any of these events take your fancy?
Be adventurous, challenge yourself, change lives.

The Surrey Half Marathon 2019

Next year's race has been confirmed for Sunday 10th March 2019 and we'd love you to be a part of the action!

more info >

Harrison's Racing Team  has been a part of the Surrey Half Marathon since it started in 2014. It's our  flagship running event for several reasons. Firstly, it's a local race for many of our supporters and friends. Secondly, the event is organised  really well every year and we receive positive feedback from first-time and seasoned runners alike. Finally, the course allows keen runners to achieve great results - often a new PB.

This scenic, single-lap half marathon is set in the glorious countryside surrounding Woking and Guildford, and follows a fully-closed and professionally marked and measured route out from Woking town into the rural delights of the nearby quaint villages. This picturesque race is made even more enjoyable by live music and communities of local supporters.

In 2018 we had a team of 38 runners and have received brilliant feedback from many of them. Steve Brown, second time runner, said:   'It's a great event, with lots of local support. Definitely my favourite race!'

Places are on sale HERE or email Heather for further information.

Harrison's Racing Team will be taking part in the Brighton Marathon for the third year in 2019. Our runners have enjoyed the atmosphere and the course through the iconic seaside town and if you're looking for a challenge then this could be the one for you!

In 2018 our team raised over £4,000 for our work to fund the world's best research into Duchenne. Could you help us raise even more next year? Each place costs £50 and we ask you to raise £500 in sponsorship.

If you're interested in reserving a place then please email   Heather. Our places will be on sale soon  and are strictly limited so don't delay -  get in touch today!

London Marathon 2019

For your chance to run for Harrison's Fund in one of the world's top five marathons, read on...

more info >

The London Marathon is arguably the most iconic 26.2 mile race in the world. With over 40,000 entrants from around the world and raising over £45 million for charity in 2018 alone, it's no wonder places are snapped up!

We have ONE place for next year's race so if you are interested, please do email Heather and she will send you an application form. We will ask you to commit to raising over £2,500 and the place costs £50. It's a big ask, but we know there will be several Harrison's Fund supporters who will be able to do this and we will help and guide you all the way!

The second way to gain a place is to enter the Ballot HERE. This is by no means a guaranteed entry, but it's definitely worth a shot! The ballot is open from Monday 30th April to Friday 4th May at 5pm. Our own place runners raised nearly £3,000 this year and we were there to give them a big cheer on the day. You will also receive a high quality running vest and help with your fundraising.

Good Luck!
