It allows us to be the local delivery partner for their national strategy, “Uniting the Movement”, connecting us to wider conversations and bringing a wealth of knowledge from across England.

Great Eastern Run

Living Sports’ CEO, Samantha Hyde said

 “We are delighted to have become the latest charity partner for the Great Eastern Run and are excited to be working with Good Running Events. We are so grateful to our incredible team of runners who will be proudly wearing their Living Sport vests on the day. We can not wait to cheer them on as they take on the 13.1 miles around Peterborough. This is a particularly important event to us as many of our runners are from the local community and have been previously supported by Living Sport, they are now working closely to support us by fundraising to ensure the work we do can continue to reach as many individuals as possible.”

Aaron Murrell, Director of Good Running Events quoted,

“It is fantastic to have Living Sport on board as an official charity partner of the Great Eastern Run. We’ve been working with the team for a little while now and really positive about the benefits that this charity partnership will bring to the region through the fundraising that will be taken on by the runners. We are looking forward to seeing Team Living Sport on the start line at the Great Eastern Run on October 15th!”
