Run for their lives
There are countless organised running events such as marathons and half marathons taking place up and down the UK each year.
Check out the table below for some of the upcoming running events for 2012; we often have charity assured places available and waiting for supporters to get involved in. These places can be identified in the table as ** is included next to the name of the running event.
Do not forget that if there is another running event that, or any other sponsored race or sporting event that we haven’t included, you can still take part in them and raise vital funds to support Orangutan Appeal UK.
We can send you a free fundraiser pack, (including posters, leaflets and an order form for one of our stylish and breathable sports vests).
For further information on running for the Appeal or taking part in sporting events, please email Nick on email@example.com or phone our Administration Office on 01590 623443.

Take part in one of the top running events in the UK on 15 April, with over 18,000 entrants predicted for 2012. The course is generally quite fast, and takes in a loop around Preston Park and the best of the city centre including Brighton Pavilion and stretches of coastal road with superb panoramic views. The last 15 miles is either flat or downhill!
Edinburgh Marathon Festival
The 2013 Edinburgh Marathon Festival (EMF) takes place over the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May and comprises a number of running events which take place in this historic city. We have places in the EMF Half Marathon and 10k. The Half route runs downhill to start with and is flat the rest of the way, so it is fast! It is ideal for those seeking a personal best, and also for beginners. The 10k takes in a beautiful scenic route around Holyrood Park with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and panoramic views of the city.
The Great North Run is the second biggest half marathon in the world, the biggest running event in the UK and has been held for over 30 years in Newcastle Upon Tyne. The gradually undulating 13.1 mile course runs from the city to South Shields.
This ever-popular 10 mile run takes place in Southsea, Portsmouth. The course makes its way along the sea front, passing by HMS Victory and is less gruelling than a half-marathon.
