About Us

UK Run Events is a professional running events company delivering high calibre events in beautiful surroundings combined with strong community spirit and immense runner support. UK Run Events is powered by #UKRunChat and #BreatheUnity.

With the combined expertise of Joe Williams of UKRunChat, and Rebecca Richardson of Breathe Unity, we have a wealth of experience in event organisation and management, community support, partnerships, marketing and PR. We have worked in the Sports Industry for over 25 years, so we know what is looked for in a successful event and we know the many ingredients that need to work together in order to deliver the very best race experience for everyone involved. Most importantly, we are also passionate about running and helping runners to achieve their goals, which is why we do what we do.

Here at UK Run Events we are excited to be increasing our portfolio of professional running events within the UK. We want to bring running communities together and create exciting new events that bring something very different to the UK running scene combining community spirit and support.
