Do you love running? Are you looking to push yourself to achieve your personal best in 2020? Even more, do you want to do something to raise money and tackle loneliness and isolation? 

Then join Team Carr Gomm with the much loved Men's 10K challenge in Edinburgh.

I’ve worked with Carr Gomm for a long time, so I have personally seen the difference fundraised money makes to the lives of the people we support. I love running, and taking on running events has been as much of a personal achievement as it has been to raise money for such a great cause." [Gillian, a Team Carr Gomm fundraiser]

What is this in aid of?

Team Carr Gomm is seeking to raise £60,000 via a team of at least 100 people, all doing something extraordinary, taking on a challenge and breaking down barriers. Its ultimate goal is to build connections; by encouraging people to take part in the campaign itself, and by raising money to fund activities and projects across Scotland which are bringing people together to tackle loneliness and isolation. 

And what better way to push yourself than with this superbly organised 10K run. Take on the challenge and get those you know to sponsor you to complete it. 

About the event

Not only are these events fantastic 10k timed runs but they also provide a proactive and challenging way to engage men in healthy physical activity and to promote health and wellbeing all year round. This 10K is a great chance for those who have never taken part in an event like this as part of their training for a half marathon or marathon in 2020. It is an all inclusive event that celebrates the individual’s accomplishment regardless of what that may be whether finish time/fundraising/completion. Take part!

This event will be held on Sunday 1st November 2020, with a route that starts off on the historic Royal Mile and finishes up at the Home of Scotland Rugby - Murrayfield. Over 15-year-olds can take part. 

We would suggest a minimum fundraising target of £200 but the sky is the limit! And we will be here to support you every step of the way with your fundraising efforts.
