This year ‘The Big Listen’ takes place on the 24th July, so get involved in the worthwhile cause of raising awareness for the important work that The Samaritans carry out.

Events and challenges
Whether you're couch to 5k, ultra marathon, or something in between, there will be an event running raising money for The Samaritans. This July, run, jog or walk 26.2 miles, whenever and wherever you like. You don’t need to be a marathon runner to take part in Samarathon. Take on 26.2 miles in your own time and pace to help Samaritans save lives.
