The Forever Friends Appeal are delighted to have been chosen as one of two charity partners for the 2017 Sodbury Slog.

We have 20 charity places for the race, which will open on 3rd May (TBC) once general entries close.

The Easy Runner Sodbury Slog, Presented by Bitton Road Runners, is quite simply not for the faint-hearted! Forget roads – they’re for wimps – this is a lung-busting, trainer-ruining, hill-climbing, multi-terrain challenge held over and through some of South Gloucestershire’s most stunning countryside.

Attracting around 1300 runners annually the route uses the same paths, fields, ditches and mudbaths since its original inception in 1990. The race always coincides with Remembrance Sunday and is preceded by exhortation, a two minute silence and playing of the Last Post, which sets the scene for a memorable day. The race is then started at 11:05.

Run for us!

Our charity places cost £30 (£20 of this comes directly back to us as a donation!) and we ask that your try and raise a minimum of £100 towards a ward or department of your choice at the RUH.

Once registered, we’ll then send you a team running vest, sponsorship forms and a fundraising guide full of top tips to help you go the extra mile. Plus we’ll be there on the day with lots of goodies and to cheer you on!


Already have a general entry in the race, but would like to use it to support the Appeal?

That’s great news, thank you! You’ll receive all of the same support as our charity place runners (detailed above).
