Event summary

As a cross-city urban run, Urban Rush is a different kind of challenge. Take on a 15-mile journey through the city’s landmarks, culture and heritage, solo or part of a team. Every step you take can help the 300,000 people in Britain who are fighting homelessness right now. If you are taking part as an individual, we ask for a £229 sponsorship pledge (plus registration fee). For a team of four, we ask for £799 sponsorship (plus registration fee). Not reaching your sponsorship pledge impacts on what Shelter can achieve, so please ensure you are confident in reaching this pledge before signing up for Urban Rush. The deadline for sending in your sponsorship money is six weeks after the event.
