What makes us different?
Unlike most other events companies, Raceways is a community interest company (CIC) and gives all of its profits to our charity Kids Run Free. That means that when you enter a race, volunteer at one of our events or sponsor some or all of our events you are actively supporting Kids Run Free and the amazing work it does. For more information please visit the Kids Run Free website.
