What our RunVEMBRIANS say...

An awesome experience set up by Hrh Alan Butler raising awareness and building community spirit. Get out my running shoes and dust them off every year. It's tough but there are all the other runvembrians cheering you on no matter how quick or slow you go or how far. #runvember #strongertogether

Jane Pilsworth

This is a truly inspirational event that motivates hundreds of people to get out in all weathers , resulting in a great deal of practical help for people in need in our communities. Love it

Simon Lansdowne

Having worked for one of the charity involved with HrH RunVEMBER Challenge I know how well it has helped not only the guys on the streets but also the teams that are trying to help them move on! The support from all the runvermberians to the homeless community of Swindon has been amazing to say the least but all this would not have happened without the Butler team, which I know, quite a few of us within the homelessness sector are so grateful for.
And as a participant I have to say I loved every bits of it - it was tough but so good for the soul!

Thank you to all involved. Xx

Kai Larcins

Such a brilliant cause, organised and run by our resident super hero.
My work colleagues have already started asking about it and donations have started, so no pressure for me then. Looks like I’m running.
