My MS Run
Challenge yourself with your very own My MS Run! Set yourself a distance and take on the challenge by yourself or as a team, and help us make sure no one has to face MS alone.
Whether you're a seasoned race runner or you've laced up your trainers for the first time this year, we need anyone who is up for the challenge to take on the miles to help support the MS community.
Simply sign up, and then set yourself a distance and run in your own time! Or, why not get your friends, family and colleagues involved and run further as a team.
Along the way, we are asking you to raise as much as you can. Raise £100 or more and we'll send you a free MS Society running top/vest to wear with pride as you complete your challenge.
Every mile you run and every pound raised will help make sure no one has to face MS alone.

Everything you need to know
What is My MS Run?
We’re challenging everyone to run a distance in your own time. You can track your miles using any device that can do this accurately. Strava is great for this as it tracks and analyses every aspect of your activity and can be connected to your JustGiving Page.
Why should I support the MS Society?
Over 130,000 people in the UK have MS. It’s unpredictable, and different for everyone. It’s often painful, exhausting and can cause problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We’re driving research into more – and better – treatments. For everyone. Together, we are strong enough to stop MS.
How do I sign up?
It’s simple, all you need to do is set up a JustGiving fundraising page. We'll get automatically notified that you've taken on the challenge. After that all you need to do is complete your distance and fundraise as much as you can.
Is there a fundraising target?
We don’t have a set target, or a minimum sponsorship requirement, but £100 is a great place to start. It's only with the generosity of our supporters that we can continue to be there for the MS community.
Everyone who raises £100 or more on their JustGiving fundraising page will receive an MS Society branded running top/vest.
How do I fundraise?
Please set up a JustGiving page to fundraise. All income on this will be transferred to us directly. Throughout your journey we'll provide you with fundraising tips to help support you.
Can I take part as a team?
Yes! You can take it on as a team challenge and each complete your chosen distance, or split the distance between you all. Make it a challenge for everyone!
Whatever option you choose, make sure you keep safe by following Government COVID-19 guidelines.
How can I log my distance?
JustGiving have integrated with Strava so you can now automatically share your fitness tracking, training pics, maps and miles onto your fundraising page. Find out about connecting Strava to your fundraising page on the JustGiving website.
