  • How much is it to enter?

    Applicable entry fees are detailed on the registration form accessible via each event page.

    UK Athletics members receive a £2 discount on entering a valid membership number at the point of registration. Membership discounts will not be refunded if membership numbers are provided after registration is complete.

  • How do I go about entering?

    The quickest and easiest way to enter is via our online registration system, which can be accessed through each event page. 

  • I have seen entries available to purchase through a charity – is this genuine?

    All registered charities are welcome to pre-purchase places into each Run For All event, which they then sell to their supporters. All charity places are purchased at general entry price or at a charity discounted rate – Run For All does not operate a golden bond scheme.

    You will still be required to complete our Run For All registration process in full. When purchasing a charity place, your charity will issue you with a pin code which will allow you to access our entry system and register for the event. You will need to ensure you use your pin code to register before the detailed pin expiry date/time.
