Great South Run

Join #TeamC4B for the Great South Run

All successful applicants will be contacted by 1 June



The Great South Run is the only major 10 mile running event in Europe. It has sold out to capacity every year since the first event in 1985. The fast flat course, stunning event location and the support of cheering crowds make this event very popular with first time runners and charity fundraisers.
At Call4Backup, we believe that taking on such a spectacular challenge should be rewarded. We are committed to ensuring the experience is one you will treasure forever.

It was great to raise money for a worthwhile cause in a local event close to home.

– Vicky B, #TeamC4B runner
