Charity Running Events 2018
Charity Fitness Event

Dietitian Juliette Kellow reports on kick starting your exercise programme by signing up for a charity fitness event.

Charity Running Events 2018

If you need an incentive to kickstart your exercise programme then why not sign up for a charity fitness event. There is a list of over 250 events happening nationwide at the bottom of the page. We have found events for 2018 with more being added. 

Weight Loss Resources says:

Charity fitness events are a great way to gain £££s for a good cause, while losing lbs from your waistline.

More often than not, they can help to provide the inspiration and motivation you need to keep going with an exercise plan, especially when things get tough. Knowing people are supporting you and believe you can achieve your goal can also help to spur you on.

Charity events don’t just involve running either – cycling, trekking or walking events are all available.

Whatever you choose, you’ll almost certainly need to prepare and improve your fitness – giving you the perfect excuse to get more active and lose those excess pounds.

As well as charity events there are regular events like the parkrun held across the country for you to join in with. See if there is a parkrun near you.
