Roughian Charities

Support a Roughian Charity and help make a difference.

Entering a Rough Runner event is an achievement in its own right. But why not seize the moment and raise funds for a worthy cause? Our headline charity partner is the British Heart Foundation, and we also work with a number of Roughian Charities across the UK.

If you don’t already have a ticket but would like to run for one of these charities, then click on the button alongside each charity. We will pass on your details for them to get in touch about their charity places.

If you already have a ticket to run and would like to support one of these amazing causes, then head over to our Fundraising page where you can take the first step to doing your bit.

Or if you’d just like to find out more about the charities, then just click on their logo and you’ll be able to explore their website and read up on all the incredible work they do.

Finally, if you’d like to talk to us about booking charity places or becoming a Roughian Charity, please go to our Charity Places page.


British Heart Foundation


3,000 lives are lost every week in the UK to heart and circulatory disease, meaning hundreds of families are torn apart by it each day. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer and BHF are leading the fight against it. Our pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.



Global’s Make Some Noise supports brilliant, small charities across the UK, which help youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity.

These charities struggle to get heard, so, we unite some the biggest radio stations in the UK – Heart, Capital, Capital XTRA, Classic FM, Smooth, LBC, Radio X and Gold – to give them a voice and raise money to support their amazing work.



The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity changing the world for people affected by stroke. More people than ever are benefitting from cutting-edge treatments and making full recoveries.



The Christie charity provides enhanced services over and above what the NHS funds for more than 40,000 cancer patients treated at The Christie every year. Your support can help us to fund life-changing and potentially life-saving projects that will benefit cancer patients both now and in the future.



Help us to save a 9 year old boy called Josh from a lifetime of suffering.

He is in desperate need of an operation to combat the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy – Spastic Diplegia, which he developed during the first few months of his premature birth.

The operation has been performed successfully hundreds of times, but is not funded by the NHS, so now we’re asking for your help, to help make Josh the boy he’s capable of being.
