Running is a great way to fundraise; even slight changes in lifestyle can make a big difference to your health and with a huge array of running events to choose from, there will be something that’s just right for you. Whether you walk, run, hop or skip, all of your fundraising will go towards supporting the vital services provided by CHSS.

Why run with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland?

With the CHSS running team you will get one of our fantastic technical running t-shirts, sports bottles, and you’ll be offered help and support with choosing the right event, advice and support on training, tips on fundraising, and if needed, that valuable encouraging pep talk.

Many of our runners choose to run for CHSS for personal reasons, whether they are living with the effects themselves, caring for family and friends, or in memory of a loved one. By choosing CHSS your every step helps support those 1 in 5 people affected by chest, heart and stroke illness in Scotland, and those who care for them. We would love your run to count towards Scotland’s health too.

Get in touch and make a real difference to your life, and to those affected by chest, heart, and stroke conditions across Scotland.
