The Asda Foundation Derby Half Marathon (formerly known as the Ramathon) is the oldest and biggest event of its kind in Derbyshire. It was organised by Run For All for the first time in 2018.
This race has proved to be an extremely popular addition to Run For All’s events calendar, attracting thousands of runners and raising loads of cash for good causes.
The event will be bigger and better than ever. The exciting new route starts and finishes in Iron Gate close to Derby Cathedral and takes in Pride Park Stadium, Alvaston Park and the stunning scenery of Elvaston Castle Country Park.
The course is fast and flat. A fantastically vibrant atmosphere on the day is guaranteed.
As well as being the pride of the city, runners crossing the finish line can look forward to some great rewards including a bespoke T-shirt, medal and goody bag containing well-earned post-race treats.
Runnners need to be 17 on race day to take part.
The Little Ted Foundation was set up following the founders’ devastating loss of their little boy, Ted, who they lost to cancer in April 2022, at the age 16 months old.
The families we support are granted a holiday that comes with a little extra spending money. The aim is to ensure that, regardless of financial circumstances, beneficiaries can find solace and enjoy a well-deserved break away. Whether it is creating lasting memories with their poorly child or finding a moment of peace after the loss of a beloved child. Another crucial objective is to offer financial support during extended hospital stays and provide opportunities for cherished moments closer to home, when visiting Little Ted's Lodge is not possible.
The Little Ted Foundation assists all families with seriously ill children, not just those battling cancer. While children fighting cancer hold a special place in our hearts, we recognise that families dealing with lesser-known illnesses face similar hurdles and hardships. They deserve the same opportunities to create precious memories together.
As a small charity, we rely on volunteers and fundraising events to ensure that we have the funds secured to continue to support families across the UK each year.
