Charity & Individual Entry NOW OPEN!

Coming together for good causes

The East London Mosque is delighted to announce the return of the popular 5km community fun run for 2017: the Muslim Charity Run. Join us for this fun run and help raise funds for good causes across the globe. The run itself is for men and boys of all ages, and of any faith or none; however, all are welcome at the park on the day.

Run for charity, run for fitness, run for fun!

Charity runs are great opportunities to get active, keep fit and enjoy the day in the great surroundings – all for a good cause.

The East London Mosque has organised highly successful fun runs in Tower Hamlets in each of the last five years, helping to improve health and to raise funds. The objectives are:

  • to promote healthier lifestyles
  • to help other Muslim charities raise funds for good causes

Islam places great emphasis on the blessings of one’s health and on taking measures to maintain and enhance it. Now people can take part, improve their health, and choose one of UK registered Muslim charities to support.

Why should Charities and Mosques take part?

This is a perfect opportunity for charities to get people involved, especially those who are passionate about keeping fit and active, or those who simply want a healthier lifestyle. Your fundraisers will be seen by hundreds of people on the day of the race, and everyone who sponsors will learn more about the good work you do. This event gives great exposure, helps to build your reputation, and encourages people to donate to your cause. The minimum fee to register can easily be met by fundraisers; in the past an average of £300 was raised per participant.

Approved Muslim Charities

Each approved charity will be guaranteed places for the run; a minimum registration fee of £20 per person for 20 places will go towards the cost of running the event. Charities will have greater engagement with their stakeholders through this fun event, raising funds alongside others in a spirit of cooperation.

About the Run

This is set to be one the biggest Muslim charity runs, building on the five years of success. Hundreds of runners are expected from all age groups, from children to senior citizens. The run will take place in Tower Hamlets’ Victoria Park, recognised for its heritage, sports facilities, walkways and lake, on Sunday 17th September 2017.
