What is it?

Sign up for free to RBC Race for the Kids’ global, virtual event as one of our superstar fundraisers! 

Race your own way - it’s a virtual event for all ages and abilities*. Choose from between a 2.5k, 5k, 10k or a distance of your own choice and run, walk, wheel, skip or scoot across that virtual finish line, whilst raising money for the seriously ill children from around the UK that come to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

The event may not be taking place at London’s Hyde Park this year but, instead, go wild with imagination and create your own thrilling fun run day! 

Link your fundraising page to Strava, Fitbit or mapmyrun to record any training you do prior to the event. 

We’ll then send you access to our Festival Hub with a host of exciting resources and exclusive content from a few of our famous friends that will turn your virtual RBC Race for the Kids into a day to remember! We’re talking about exclusive warm-ups, activity tutorials and entertainment. 

*Children under 18 cannot register as an individual and must be registered as part of a team with a parent or guardian. 


17 - 18 October 2020


Wherever you are! Whether it’s in your garden or in the local park, you can race your own way. Please make sure you have read the most up-to-date government advice on social distancing before taking part. Visit gov.uk/coronavirus for more information. 

Why we need your support now more than ever

With many of our major fundraising events cancelled due to Covid-19, we are predicting a drop of as much as £20 million in the money we raise this year. Any support you can give means you’ll be making a huge difference to seriously ill children and their families at the hospital. They still need us and we need you, now, more than ever. 

Fundraising for the virtual event means we can support GOSH in many different ways. Your fundraising will help to fund pioneering research into life-changing treatments, state-of-the-art technology that helps save young lives, vital patient family support services and wellbeing services for GOSH’s superhero staff. Money raised will also go towards the creation of new child-focused surroundings at the hospital to help children feel safe and calm during their appointments and treatments.
