The Fun Run is more than just a race; it’s a day of family fun, connection, and fundraising for London’s amazing charities.

Challenge yourself on our 5km or 10km routes or run with friends on the 1km route. All routes are strictly non-competitive, and you can take it at your own pace. You can enjoy our buzzing festival area which will feature dance and music performances from a wide range of cultures, as well as a space for reflection, meditation, and conversation. There will be a Prayer & Reflection Room on site.

Another key feature of the day is the Charity Fair, showcasing the incredible work of all participating cross-communal charities. After two successful years, Interfaith Fun Run hopes to have over 75 charities part of the day.
