Event Description

YMCA North London’s annual Adult 10k and Children’s fun runs has evolved since 1991 into one of the largest community events in North London, continuing to grow in popularity and attendance year on year.

It is one of the largest community events in North London, a diary must for many. Over 3,500 adults and children enter the 10 fun runs - an adult 10k event, and 8 children's fun runs - and over 5,000 people in Priory Park enjoy the day-long festival of music and entertainment.

The 8 children's- split by gender and school year - from reception age 3 to aged 15. A maximum of 200 in each race.

This is our flagship fundraising event, which enables us to celebrate the work we do in the community.

Fundraising is optional, however our aim is to raise funds to enable YMCA North London to continue to provide much needed services for some of our community’s most vulnerable groups. 

Funds raised will directly support 19,500 concession fee rates for local people on low incomes to access our childcare, children’s recreational activities and health and well-being services. 

YMCA North London also offers support to young people at our 154-bed hostel, that provides accommodation and support to 300 vulnerable young homeless people each year.

- £2 could provide a child from a low income family with a meal at our breakfast club
- £11 funds a discounted after-school club session to a low-income family
- £61 supports a child from a low-income family to join a holiday course
