Why Not Run: 9th May 2021 - CANCELLED


Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and in line with government guidelines, the Why Not Run event scheduled for 9th May 2021 has been cancelled. In lieu of participating in the event, could we please suggest that you consider donating your entry fee directly to Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) via our JustGiving page to help CRY continue their life-saving research and screenings? Thank you.


The committee is keeping a close eye on governemnt announcements regarding sporting events and as soon as we are able to, we will announce the date of the next Why Not Run event, so please keep checking this website for updates.


Why Not Run will continue to support The Ben Daniels Memorial Fund in association with Cardiac Risk in the Young and money raised from the event will provide a cardiac screening event in the local area, where all participants in this year's event will receive priority booking for this free screening.


Further details about the event can be found on the Event Information page, including a link to print an entry form.

The Ben Daniels Memorial Fund in association with CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)


Ben tragically died in 2011 from an undiagnosed heart condition whilst playing football aged just 15. Ben's fund raises money to hold screening sessions in the local area to screen as many children and young people as possible.


At least twelve young people die in the UK each week from undiagnosed heart problems, so in addition to raising funds for this fantastic charity, we are also hoping to raise awareness of the importance of having young people screened.


Funds raised from Why Not Run events go towards hosting a series of local screening sessions, with Why Not Run participants receiving priority bookings onto these screenings.
