Did you hear the news? We’ve launched a new virtual race to inspire black women to move this autumn, in honour of UK Black History Month.

Run For The Culture will empower women to run a set distance between 19 to 26 October. This can be 1 mile, 5km or 10km, and everyone who logs their run will receive a medal.

A pre-race virtual event will also take place on 17 October.

Fly Girl Collective founder Matilda Egere-Cooper said: “The Black Lives Matter protests may have died down, but our lives still matter – especially the wellbeing of black women who are more likely to experience health inequities or face barriers to participating in sport and fitness. Run For The Culture is an opportunity to honour Black History Month by celebrating black women and the things they can achieve – like completing a race challenge.”

Registration for the race is £20 (plus booking fee) and a percentage of proceeds will be donated to BLAM UK, a charity committing to improving the wellbeing and self-esteem of people of African descent through Black History lessons.
