Team Right To Play

By running for us you will be joining a global network of challenge event participants and athlete ambassadors as a member of #TeamRightToPlay. As part of #TeamRightToPlay you will receive:

  • A professional 'Team Right To Play' running shirt
  • Motivational tips and advice from our athlete ambassadors
  • Practical fundraising help
  • Support from our dedicated Challenge Events Team

Most importantly you will know that you are making a difference to the lives of the most disadvantaged children from some of the world's poorest communities.



Raising money should be fun and we have a team of expert fundraisers that can help you. Once you are registered they will provide you with all the support you need, including how to setup an online fundraising page and tips for how to spread the word about your challenge. 

If you get your own place for this event but would still like to fundraise for us then get in touch and we can help.
