Schools Shield

School Shield

We're incredibly excited to launch our School Shield! This is a new inclusion at this year's event, and the school with the lowest combined time total for the first 10 runners from their school will take home our RISE 8K Shield until the following year.


To form a team, five students aged 15+ will be able to run with one adult per group. We offer a discounted entry into the race for the team, which includes: a technical running vest, an 8-week complimentary training plan provided by one of our partners Freedom Leisure, a complementary Luna Bar from Clif Bars a UK-exclusive nutritional snack designed for Women & Girls, a goodie bag containing gifts from selected partners, and a medal.

What are the requirements of the team?

Our race is for women and girls only, but we welcome volunteers of all gender expressions and are always grateful for assistance on the day!

All we ask is for participants to raise a minimum of £20 each.

How do we sign up?

Contact our 8K team via email at [email protected] or [email protected] who will organise a school visit to encourage and inspire your students to be part of the team and get the team signed up.

We look forward to hearing from you!
