Join us for Poppy Run Durham
Choose to run, jog or walk 5km – the event is open to all ages and abilities, including four legged friends.
Whatever the circumstances, we are here to help –without judgement –and to provide a safe space for the Armed Forces community and their families to access the support they need. Your fundraising helps us to continue supporting serving and ex-serving officers as well as their families.
Every person, every step, every poppy counts.

Why run for us?
The Royal British Legion was born out of the First World War, fighting for those who had given so much, and providing welfare and comradeship to millions.
The last 18 months has impacted us all, and the people who rely on us for support need us more than ever.
By supporting the Poppy Appeal you ensure that those who have served are being looked after no matter what challenges they, and the country faces.
Now more than ever, every poppy counts - Register your interest
