Be a Runny Egg

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 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.

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