It’s your chance to embrace a positive start to the new year,boost your everyday health, and raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity)! Run in the park, by a river, through town or on a treadmill. Run by yourself, socially distanced with a friend or a team and choose your own fundraising goal so family and friends can sponsor you. This is the run that suits everyone.
