Runny eggs

Challenge yourself with a running event

Hundreds of people have become runny eggs and raised hundreds and even thousands of pounds through running – why not join them!

Whether you’re a complete beginner aiming for your first 5k, or a seasoned runner training for your next marathon – people will sponsor you and raise money to make more hens happy. Even a small amount from each of your friends can make a real difference to our work.

For example, John Melbourne completed a gruelling 97-mile run and raised £515 for the BHWT! He took on the Heroes Ultra Crete 2016 in May 2016 and finished in FIRST place!

Deborah Thompson ran her first 5k in June and raised £198 for the BHWT in the process! We are so incredibly grateful to her for taking on what must have been a tough first race.

Gareth Harries (who you can see above!) recently ran a half marathon in a chicken suit, while carrying a donation bucket! He’s in training for the 2018 London Marathon (though we’re not sure if the chicken suit and bucket will be in tow…!)

You can also take part in a Couch to 5k challenge – a fantastic 9 week programme designed to get people off the couch and running 5k in 9 weeks.
