About the challenge

Although we cannot meet you in London this year, we are delighted to launch Run The Night virtually. This year we would love for you to take part at home, in and around your local area, completing the challenge running any distance of your choice! Set yourself a target distance and complete it in one day or across many days within the month of October.

Take part as a team

Invite your friends and family to join you. After you have registered with your own Just Giving page, why not set up a team page and work towards a distance and fundraising target together!

Any distance!

You can choose any distance you like. This could be your first ever 5k, doubling the distance and taking on a 10k or pushing yourself to complete a half marathon or marathon – or anywhere in between or beyond!


We would love for you to raise as much as you can for Crohn’s & Colitis UK. If you raise £250 by 31st October we will send you a FREE Run The Night medal!

Where your donations could help:

A £5 donation could cover the cost to provide a family affected by Crohn's and Colitis with an informative pack that helps them understand and manage their condition

A £10 donation could pay for us to answer 1 call to our helpline so that people affected by Crohn’s and Colitis can get the reassurance, support and information they need

A £50 donation could pay for us to train a volunteer to do amazing work in their local community

A £150 donation could fund a full day of research, which could lead to new and better treatments and even a cure for Crohn’s and Colitis

A £300 donation could pay for a child living with Crohn's and Colitis to attend a life-changing three-day residential family camp, where they can take on new challenges with their loved ones in a supportive environment
