In 2022, we organised our inaugural ‘Run with Rich’ event in Nottingham at Holme Pierrepont; a unique fundraising event consisting of a 5km “run” and a sensory 1-mile course for participants to complete. The focus of the event is to provide a truly inclusive experience, with participants able to complete the courses ‘their way’ alongside double Paralympic champion Richard Whitehead.

Last year we were blown away by the level of participation we achieved, with around 450 participants, 50 volunteers, and lots of spectators. It was an amazing community inclusive event, with local club runners, Paralympians, novice runners, first-timers, people recovering from life changing events or an opportunity for people to celebrate their level of ability, everyone came away from the event with memories that will last forever.

For our first event, we were over the moon, and we are now back for 2023, on the 18th of June and hope to be even bigger and better than ever.

This event is aimed at everyone. And we mean everyone! Our venue is fully accessible to all, we have will additional support measures such as a Changing places facility and step-free access.

The event will enable disabled and non-disabled people to come together in a celebration of physical activity. We have two courses available, a 1 mile sensory route or a 5k route, both are open to all and we encourage everyone to take part their way. Whether that is taking part for the first time, pulling out all the stops in fancy dress or going the distance with a running frame, wheelchair or crutches—you are welcome to run ‘your way’ with Rich and be part of something very special.
