Raise money to help Winston's Wish in their mission to support children of bereavement by taking part in Cheltenham Running Festival 2024.

Looking for a challenge of stamina and fitness while fundraising for an incredible charity? Tick off both this summer by joining Team Winston and taking on a run at the Cheltenham Running Festival 2024.

See Cheltenham Racecourse in a different way on Sunday 16 June 2024 as you run within and around the horse racing circuit in an event like no other!

Choose your optimal distance for success, with options including a 5k, a 10k, or really test yourself with a half marathon distance — there's also a junior race to allow for a true family day out.

Each mile is accurately marked out with plenty of helpers on hand to keep everyone on track, while encouraging runners all the way to the finish line.

Registration for each distance is free, but has a minimum sponsorship amount for runners to fundraise.

The 5k requires £75 to be raised; the 10k requires £100; and the half marathon requires £150 minimum sponsorship.

Entry includes a unique themed medal awarded on completion, along with official race photographs and post-race goodies to take home — plus, those who go on to smash their fundraising targets will receive a Winston's Wish branded vest to commemorate the occasion!

All funds raised go to the UK's first children and young people's bereavement charity Winston's Wish, an organisation dedicated to providing emotional and practical support to children and young people when their worlds are turned upside down by grief.
