Run Event – with all faiths & beliefs for a connected London
When: Monday 30th August 2021 | 9am-3pm
Where: StoneX Stadium, Greenlands Lane, Barnet, London NW4 1RL
On Monday 30th August 2021 join hundreds of people from all walks of life as they come together at the StoneX Stadium in Barnet (home of Saracens F.C.) to raise money for over 30 charities that work across religious and cultural communities, celebrating and supporting our diverse capital.
The Faith & Belief Forum and Maccabi GB are delighted to be partnering for this groundbreaking event with the support of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London’s Council on Faith, and Dangoor Education.
The London Interfaith Fun Run combines health and wellbeing with cross-generational engagement and communal partnerships. It will bring together members of the community of all ages, abilities and religious observances, who can walk or run 1km, 5km or 10 km routes.
Enthusiastic participants are invited to fundraise for a range of charities supporting vital work in our capital city, such as Faiths for the Climate, Humanists UK, Stand Up! Education against Discrimination, CitySikhs, amongst others. Find the full list here >>
There will also be a delicious Food Court offering a wide range of food from different cultures, and a Charity Fair where you can visit and support all the incredible charities from London’s diverse community. There will also be an Interfaith Fun Zone and our aim is to provide a ‘summer festival vibe,’ featuring a number of different performances as well as other interactive activities for all to enjoy. All are invited!
The event will be a true festival of fun, positivity and togetherness, something which we have all been so desperate for over the last eighteen months.
The Faith & Belief Forum has worked in London and beyond for over 20 years with well-established interfaith programmes including ParliaMentors, school linking, LGBT+Faith, the Faith & Belief Community Awards, and more. The overall aim is to build good relations between people of all faiths and beliefs and to create a society where difference is celebrated.
Our partner Maccabi GB is Britain’s leading Jewish Sports, Health and Wellbeing charity and has flourished for over 80 years. The organisation focuses on three central areas of work: Sport, Community and Informal Education.
