We have tried to provide the information you need on our website. If you can’t find the information you are looking for please contact us and we will ensure you get a prompt response. However, before contacting us, do check the FAQs below:

Can I enter the People’s Run 2 Remember on the day?

Sorry, we only accept entries in advance via online entry or postal entry.

When do entries close?

Online entries close at midnight ten days before the date of each run. Postal entries must be received not later than ten days before each run.

What distance is the People’s Run 2 Remember?

All runs are 5km which is 3.1 miles in old money.

There isn’t a People’s Run 2 Remember in my local area. Can I still take part?

Yes! Join our Virtual People’s Run 2 Remember and take part wherever you are, on your own or  with friends. More details here.

Why isn’t there a People’s Run 2 Remember in my local area?

All our runs are organised by local volunteers and, much though we would love to have a People’s Run 2 Remember in every local area, we can only stage a run where we have volunteers. If you, someone you know or a local club or other organisation would like to organise your own local People’s Run 2 Remember then please get in touch. We will do all we can to support you.

Will my time and finishing position be recorded?

No. The People’s Run 2 Remember is a fun run not a race. You are, of course, welcome to time yourself.

When will I receive my number and directions?

All details and directions will be emailed out to runners 7-10 days prior to your event. Numbers and T-shirts will be available for collection on the day. As a charity event we find not posting these out in advance saves a considerable amount of money.

Do I have to run the whole way?

Absolutely not! Although the event is called the People’s Run 2 Remember you can jog it, walk it or even crawl it if you want. The main thing is we all come together to support those who have so selflessly given on behalf of us all. But, of course, you can run it if you want to!

How will I know how far I have run and/or how far there is to go?

There will be a sign every kilometre telling you how far you have gone. These will be large yellow signs with the distance written in black.

No, although if you are aged under 13 on the day of your People’s Run 2 Remember you must be accompanied by a responsible adult who has also entered the event.

We like to think of the People’s Run 2 Remember as a community event which is genuinely open to all.

What time does the event start?
