The HHP Virtual Run is to help raise awareness and vital funds for Harrogate Homeless Projects. After a successful 30th Anniversary virtual run which raised over £5000 we are encouraging runners to again grab their trainers and take on a 5k or 10k challenge in aid of HHP.
The challenge is to run 5k, 10k or a half marathon on a day of your choosing in September 2023. To enter a £10 donation per person is required.
A £10.00 donation will provide a hot meal, shower, clothing and laundry facilities for a person experiencing homelessness.
Harrogate Homeless Project provides people experiencing homelessness in the Harrogate District, with a safe place to stay and the support they need to build confidence and move towards independent living. We operate a day centre, supporting people experiencing homelessness with day-to-day care, emergency overnight accommodation, a 16-bed hostel and move on housing along with a range of support services.
This is a virtual event meaning you can run where you like, when you like, in September 2023, and all you need to do is log your run on an activity tracker and send this to us and you will earn yourself the following for taking part.
Participants will receive:
We have teamed up with Up & Running for the following prizes:
£75 voucher for fastest 5k and 10k times
£31 voucher for 31st fastest in the 5k and 10k distances
£100 voucher for best fundraising team (most donations raised for any distance)
Along with your £10 donation on entry, why not raise further donations for HHP, by setting up a JustGiving page and encourage friends, family and colleagues to support you. For more information click here.

Medals for this event are made by our friends at Jennyruth Workshops.
At Jennyruth Workshops, adults with learning disabilities gain confidence, independence, work and life skills. It is a vibrant and challenging workplace where workers from Ripon and surrounding areas are trained in a wide variety of skills.
Challenge yourself and raise money for HHP in the process. Our club is for people looking to motivate each other whilst training or taking part in one of our running, walking or hiking fundraisers.
