Running Events

Raise money, help others, feel good!

There’s a time and pace to help Poole Hospital

Here at PHC we LOVE runners, so why not join the team by signing up for a run and getting sponsored?
When you raise £100 we will give you a free Poole Hospital Charity Running Vest, or raising £50 will get you a PHC T-Shirt.
Below is a list of running events we are currently involved in. If you are participating in a race not listed here you can still choose to fundraise for Poole Hospital and receive our full support. Contact us for more information.

 Virgin Money London Marathon 2018                                                                                                                                            

Ever want to be part of the Virgin London Marathon? Now is your chance! 
Register for one of our five Golden Bond charity places.  We draw the names from the hat in November each year for race day the following April and ask you to raise a minimum of £1500 in sponsorship.
If you receive a place directly through the Marathon’s ballot you can still be a part of the Poole Hospital Charity marathon team and will receive all the same benefits as the Golden Bond holders but we won’t ask you to raise a minimum amount, just as much as you can  Register for the PHC ballot here.



Poole Festival of Running

What a great year!
We were  delighted to have been chosen once again as the nominated charity for Poole Festival of Running 2017. This year we were asked to raise sponsorship money for the Radiotherapy Ward.
Through your support we have currently raised over £10,000 which has enabled us to purchase new equipment to improve the accuracy and comfort of patients treatment.
The weekend included five children’s minithons, a 5k Race for Cancer and a 10k road race as well as family entertainment and live music.
Thank you to everyone who took ran, organised, volunteered and donated. Have a look at our pictures of the Poole Festival of Running 2017 here.
