Run for WaterAid to save the world

Every day, girls in some of the world’s poorest communities are living without access to safe water and toilets. Wherever they are born, girls should be healthy, able to go to school and be free to play with their friends – to just be a girl.

Join WaterAid’s team at Run to the Beat 10K or the Bupa Great North Run and as part of the charity’s ‘To be a girl’ campaign, every pound you raise will be doubled by the UK Government, reaching twice as many girls.

Run to the Beat

Join WaterAid and run, dance or hip-hop your way around this new 10K route, past live DJs pumping out motivational tunes, taking in the iconic Wembley Stadium, and when the hard work’s done celebrate in style with the main headline act!

Bupa Great North Run

This is your last chance to sign up for this year’s Bupa Great North Run and be a part of the world’s greatest half marathon. Registration closes on Friday, so don’t miss out, sign up today!

Got your own place? Run for WaterAid and make every step count more than ever before.

Run for WaterAid

There’s no time to be a girl when every day you have to walk for water and find somewhere safe to go to the toilet.

You can help change this.

Join us at Run to the Beat or the Bupa Great North Run!
