Run Forest Run
About the group
Run Forest Run is a community of runners, dedicated to using their talents and love for running in a way that positively impacts those less fortunate than themselves.
We will be taking on the UK National 3 Peak Challenge in an aim to break the current men's relay run record and raise funds for Joint Aid Management (JAM) and their COVID-19 emergency response. The current record to summit the 3 highest peaks in the UK (Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scaffel Pike in England and Snowdon in Wales) and run the entire distance (~665km+) between the peaks stands at 54 hours 39min.

Fundraising for Joint Aid Management (JAM)
Joint Aid Management (JAM) is a UK registered charity (England and Wales 1050992, Scotland SC043643) that has been working in humanitarian relief and development in multiple countries and communities across Africa for more than 30 years, empowering all those it works with. JAM facilitates communities to develop viable social and commercial enterprise.
The impact of COVID-19 on 1.3 million vulnerable JAM beneficiaries calls for collective and urgent response. Pre-existing drivers such as poverty, food insecurity, epidemics, droughts, flooding, lack of water and sanitation, poor service delivery, low education levels, unequal access to information and civil strife will complicate the effects on these communities. And with the widespread shutdown of schools over 200,000 children are deprived of vital nutritional support. These are children and their families dependent on JAM’s school meals.
