Mission runs

Run to help older people and community projects with one-off tasks.

Do you want to volunteer, but can't commit regularly? Missions are perfect for you. They give you a reason to run different routes and you're likely to be making a big impact on someone's life too. Maybe it'll even make you run a bit faster?

How it works

Make your way to mission locations where you team up with other runners to help older people with things they are struggling to do themselves.



Run solo from where you are to get to the mission location



Meet other runners and complete the task



Run your return route



Don't forget to stretch off
