On your marks, get set... Poppy Run!

Join The Royal British Legion this autumn in a series of family-friendly races taking place across the country. Run, jog or walk – these 5K runs are open and accessible to all – including dogs!On your marks, get set... Poppy Run!

Held during the Remembrance period, Poppy Runs are a way for you to come together in remembering the fallen, raising vital funds to help the Legion support the Armed Forces community and achieving your own personal triumph. Each event begins at 11am, starting with a two-minute silence to commemorate all those who have served.

On completing your 5K you will be presented with a collectable Poppy Run medal. There are 15 events nationwide, but if you can’t make a Poppy Run and you’d still like to take part, we’ve got you covered with My Poppy Run. This means you can choose a time, location and distance that suits you.
