Join Team Sands and take part in Miles in May. From being a 5k Sands’ Superhero, to walking 220 miles around Kent – we’ve got events to suit everyone!

Walking Kent’s Castles

Support Sands by taking part in a unique walking event in Kent taking in 25 historic castles including Leeds, Rochester, Sissinghurst and Dover! Starting on Wednesday 27th April; Christopher Howard and David Roberts will be walking 220 miles in just 20 days! They’ll visit 25 castles in Kent on their journey to raise funds for Sands and Muscular Dystrophy UK and are inviting anyone who wants to support Sands or MDUK to join them!

Superhero Run

Be a Sands’ Superhero and take part in the Superhero Run on 15th May! This 5 or 10k (you get to decide!) is a fantastic running event taking place in London's Regent's Park. No previous experience is required for the event and with a bit of training the distance should easily be within your capabilities. The spirit of the event is 'taking part' not 'winning' so you can run, jog, walk or fly - you decide! Plus every entrant receives a free Superhero costume!

Tough Mudder Midlands

Tough Mudder Midlands has a brand new home for 2016, so get ready to face a series of new, adrenaline-pumping challenges on 21st – 22nd May. The majestic 16,000 acre venue will take your breath away in more ways than one – and promises many more lung-busting hills in addition to woodlands, water, and, yes…tons and tons of mud!

Morrison’s Great Manchester Run

Why not sign up and take part in the biggest and best 10k in the UK – the Morrison’s Great Manchester Run on 22nd May! With more than 40,000 people taking part each year, this fantastic route takes you through all the top sites of Manchester and promises to be a truly memorable event!
