A group of fundraisers at Run for Mum

Run for Mum

Our annual event may not be happening in its usual format this year, but you can take on your own 5k, 10k, or half marathon distance on 14 March and throughout the month. We'll send you everything you need to help you plan and complete your route virtually. 

Take part and have double the impact: the first £10,000 raised through this event will be matched thanks to the incredible generosity of our friends, Julia and Hans Rausing. So every pound you raise, up to our £10,000 match target, will be doubled!

Run for someone you remember, for someone you know or for future generations of women with ovarian cancer. Sprint to the finish line and you’ll be accelerating progress in ovarian cancer.

How to join Team Target

There's a £5 registration fee and we ask all participants to set a fundraising target of at least £100.  

Sign up

You’ll also be able to follow Team Target runners’ fundraising and challenge progress on our leaderboards with the RunGo app. All you need to do is download the RunGo app, search routes for ‘Run for Mum’, and choose your distance. You can find all you need in this handy virtual race guide.

You’ll receive a t-shirt as part of the registration fee, with the option to upgrade to a technical running vest. You’ll also receive a medal and certificate after you’ve completed your challenge.

If you have any queries, please contact the fundraising team at fundraising@targetovariancancer.org.uk.
