Join the Heart Runners team

Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer. Every year, thousands die prematurely, and those who survive can find life difficult and frightening. For over 50 years we’ve pioneered research that’s transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.

Our work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are changing the fight against heart disease. But so many people still need our help – from babies born with life-threatening heart problems to the many mums, dads and grandparents who survive a heart attack and endure the daily battles of heart failure.

Join the Heart Runners team and join the fight against heart disease.

Supporting you

Join our team and as well as the chance to help power life saving research, you’ll benefit from: 

- a red Heart Runners technical top

- fun tools and tips to help with your fundraising, including a fundraising pack in the post

- bespoke training support from our world-class running coaches

- a friendly team here to support you all the way.
