Run for Evolve

Whatever run, cycle, walk or jump you’re doing, we would love you to use your place to help us change the lives of homeless people in London.

Why sweat for Evolve?

Homelessness and rough sleeping in London are on the rise, and our work is needed more than ever. With your help, we can provide accommodation and support services to some of London’s most vulnerable people, enabling them to move on to independent living and achieve their full potential.

As a valued member of Team Evolve, we’ll ensure you receive:

  • Ongoing personal support and advice throughout the whole experience to help you make the most of your challenge event
  • A fundraising pack full of ideas and advice to help you raise sponsorship and have the biggest impact for homeless people in London
  • Training guides – from beginners to pros – we’ll support you through your training
  • An Evolve running t-shirt to proudly train in and to wear on race day
  • Social media ‘shout outs’ + public applause + support for your amazing efforts
  • Updates on our work and stories throughout your training about some of the people you’ll be helping, to keep you inspired and motivated
  • Opportunities, if you wish, to meet some of our inspirational service users and staff teams in our homeless hostels in London to visibly see our work and what you are a part of
  • A brilliant race day experience –  if we can be there, we will be!
  • The biggest ‘congratulations and thank you’ from Evolve service users, staff and volunteers to salute you for the amazing work you have done for homeless people of London

Virgin Money London Marathon 2020 | Sunday, 26 April

Have you entered the ballot for the Virgin Money London Marathon 2020? We would love to hear from you! Join #TeamEvolve and run one of the Worlds Marathon Majors for the future of homeless people in our capital city.

As a ballot runner, there is no minimum sponsorship. We would just ask you to aim for a fundraising target of £1,500 and we will be there to support you all the way to smash that figure.

“Evolve are a great charity and they will help you with your event and fundraising preparation so you aren’t on your own! I hope more people participate in challenge events for Evolve as it’s been a really good and enjoyable experience for me.”

Katie Hatrick, London Marathon 2018 finisher.

Please get in touch if you get lucky and secure a space.
