Run Brittania

We are supporting Rat Race on their 35 day event crossing the entire length of the United Kingdom from Lands End to John O'Groats. Over 80 runners complete this in 5 stages, covering 20-30 miles a day. 

Our role is to offer MSK support to those in need. unlike some of our previous event we are not aiming to offer treatment to all runners.

If you're looking to take a break from the Rat Race of clinic and spend time with a whole new group of inspiring people then this event is for you!
