Welcome to One Running Movement
One Running Movement is a collaborative evolution for movement and change #MoveForLife
We are unique in our approach to encourage and have something for all ages and all abilities to become more active, no matter where they are in the UK or the world.
With rewards along the way, an exciting end goal and the chance to achieve something amazing with family and friends, our challenges are enhancing the physical and emotional wellbeing of thousands of people across the UK and the world.
From school pupils as young as 4 through to parents, carers, families, siblings and adults, our mission is simple: to inspire families and entire communities to #MoveForLife and the life-changing benefits that this can bring.
Our strength is in our collaborations with communities, schools, families, the sports industry and partners; together as ONE we have the power to give something back and make a significant difference to future generations through activity, sport and collaboration.
Our aim is to create more active communities through inclusive challenges and being part of a movement that means something to everyone involved. We want to add to the school sport experience, support the creation of healthy habits and make a new style of general sport education and knowledge available for all.
How it all started
One Running Movement originated as Primary Schools Challenge and Schools Half Marathon, which was trialled in the school year 2016 / 2017 in Shropshire as part of Shrewsbury Half Marathon event weekend with 2 schools and 75 pupils. The event was such a success that Shropshire went on to welcome 900 pupils from 21 schools in 2018 and over 1,800 pupils from 32 schools in 2019. Delivering to 2,000 pupils virtually during 2020 in Shropshire alone!
We developed more virtual events in 2020 and have delivered our goals collectively to the new world we all find ourselves in, with over 10’s of thousands of children, young adults and adults taking part in One Running Movement.
We have delivered all our events virtually this year and launched new exciting annual collaborative initiatives to help everyone #MoveForLife, these include:
- Schools Half Marathon (ages 4 to 16)
- Schools Marathon (ages 4 to 16)
- Schools Half Marathon The Barony (ages 4 to 11)
- One Running Movement Half Marathon (ages 17+)
- One Running Movement Marathon (ages 17+)
- Run For Climate Change for Individuals, Families and Businesses (all ages from age 4+)
- Energy For Movement B2B & B2C collaborations
We have hugely supportive and high profile Foundation and Power Up Partners that form The AC as part of our commitment to #giveback.
