Poppy Run is a series of family friendly races taking place in locations across the country in October and November this year. Run, jog or walk – the 5km races are open to all, including dogs!  

Held during the Remembrance period, Poppy Runs are another way for you and your community to remember. Together you will be remembering the fallen, raising funds for those in need in the Armed Forces community and achieving your own personal triumph.

Each event begins at 11am and starts with a Two Minutes Silence.

If you can't make a Poppy Run but you’d still like to take part, we’ve got you covered with My Poppy Run. You choose the time, location and distance.
