We would like to say a massive thankyou to our sponsors who continue to support RunVEMBER year in year out, their commitment is very much appreciated.

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

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

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.

This is win win all around. Runvember gets me out and active on those dark winter days when I'd be tempted to stay inside. It makes me so grateful every time I come back home for the roof over my head and the hot water I'm lucky enough to have. Filling a box makes me think hard about what would bring comfort to someone living on the streets. There is constant support from the online Runvember community and especially from Mr. Runvember himself, who along with his family starts work long before November 1st and carries on working long after November 30th. Thank you. I'm privileged to be a Runvembrian!
