Solo or team. Run or relay. The race to end homelessness is on.

Homelessness across Britain is rising dramatically, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Together, we can end it. Play your part and challenge yourself with Crisis this summer.

Sign up solo and run a square mile. Take it further and tackle a 10k. Or create a team and leg it in our unique relay race.

Whichever you choose, sprint past iconic landmarks in London’s Square Mile and raise vital funds to end homelessness.

Can you win the Crisis Square Mile Run?

Sign up solo and choose between our 4 mile or 10km route. Or register a team of up to four people in the relay race.

Tools and tips

How your fundraising helps

We know homelessness is not inevitable. From decades of experience working with thousands of homeless people we know what's needed to end it. But it is only by working together that we can achieve this. The services we deliver rely on the incredible support we receive from fundraisers.

£10

provides a warm welcome and helps someone take the first steps out of homelessness.

While we campaign together for the changes needed to end homelessness for good, we will continue to welcome individuals into our centres and provide services that we know address the issues faced by people experiencing homelessness. Last year we welcomed over 10,000 individuals into our services.

£25

helps someone regain a sense of worth through healthcare and counselling.

Being homeless is devastating for a person’s mental and physical health. Crisis helps people rebuild their health and wellbeing through classes, social activities, personal coaching and by supporting them to access GPs and other services.

£50

helps someone gain the skills or qualifications they need to turn their life around.

Lack of skills and qualifications can lead people to become and stay homeless, isolated from society, work and independence. Education is at the heart of Crisis – supporting people to build knowledge and skills, grow in confidence and feel more positive about the future.

£100

provides support, training and equipment to help someone find their way back into employment.

Eighty per cent of homeless people say they want to get back into work. Crisis’ employment coaches help people find their own route towards a new job or career. Last year, 737 people that used our services secured a paid job.

£250

provides one-to-one support to help someone find a safe place to call home.

For many homeless people, private renting is the only way to find a home. Through coaching, classes and projects across the UK, Crisis gives people the tools and knowledge they need to find a rented house and make it into a home. Last year we helped 832 people to access stable accommodation.
