The Running Bee Foundation has teamed up with new Gorton-based youth charity, The HideOut Youth Zone for a month-long virtual racing event – which goes live today! (5th October)

The 4-week challenge will see runners complete a race of their choice: a 1M, 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon in a bid to help the charity support as many young people as possible.

Runners will pay £10 and can take the race at their own pace over the course of the event – even by walking, jogging, running or even cycling – with all profits going to the Hideout Project. Participants will also receive a medal by post.

The HideOut, located on Hyde Road, aims to provide a safe and inspiring space for thousands of young adults aged between 8-19 and those up to 25 with additional needs.

There, everyone has the opportunity to engage in over 20 activities every evening including sports, arts, music, media, dance, drama and much more while making friends, developing aspirations and learning new skills.

Adam Farricker, CEO of HideOut Youth Zone, said: This challenge will help to raise vital funds to support our direct delivery over the coming months. We are extremely grateful to have the support of The Running Bee Foundation, so please get involved, get active and support the challenge if you can.”

Commenting on the event, The Running Bee’s Event Logistics and Sponsor Activation Manager Kevin Harmer added: “The HideOut will be providing an invaluable service for children and young adults, and we are delighted to work with them on The HideOut Virtual Run.

“Never before has it been so important to spread the word of how important health and well being is, and we hope that the supporters of both the RBF and The Hideout will get behind this and participate.”
