Run for WaterAid >

Right now, the world’s poorest people are living without access to safe water, toilets or good hygiene. This crisis is ruining lives and holding back development.

Women are wasting precious time walking long distances to collect dirty water. Girls are dropping out of school because there are no private toilets. And young children are not surviving to see their fifth birthday because of preventable diseases.

We know it’s possible to get safe water, sanitation and hygiene to everyone, everywhere within a generation.

With your help, we are going to make it happen.

Join our team today, choose your distance and run to #FinishThirst. 

We'll support you all the way. 

To help support all our runners in the lead up to race day we’ve teamed up with professional coaches at RunningWithUs, to provide you with a training support package to get you to the start line fully prepared to take on your chosen distance!

As a member of our team you’ll receive:

  • A bespoke training plan – suitable for your level of experience
  • Email helpline – ask the coach training, race, nutrition or injury questions
  • Twitter and Facebook ask the coach services and live Q and A sessions
