Fundraising events: charity runs, races & challenges

5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, marathons & fun charity runs

We love it when you take on a physical challenge to raise funds and awareness for charity: with sponsored runs from 5Ks to marathons and all sorts of Spartan races down to Zombie Evacuation, we’ve got it all. We will help you reach your fundraising goal while you help us build more homes!

Why do a charity run with us?

If you’re participating in one of our charity challenges you will receive:

  • A race shirt
  • Dedicated support from our volunteering team to help you reach your fundraising target
  • Our growing collection of online fundraising resources (ask us for any material you’d like to receive)
  • Your own personal web page to fundraise for your run (though you are free to use any fundraising platform)

Join a fundraising event

Once you’ve found the right race for you, you can go ahead and register your details with us to start fundraising for our charity. We’ll get you set up and ready to take on the challenge.

Whether you’re going for a fun Zombie run or the full 26 miles marathon run, choose a training plan that will work best for you.  And don’t forget to tell your friends and family about your sponsored charity run, and raise money for Habitat for Humanity GB! 

We look forward to supporting your charity race, do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions!
