Bracknell Samaritans Run – Saturday 27th June 2020

We are proud and excited to bring you the 39th annual Bracknell Samaritans Run on Saturday 27th June 2020, at Easthampstead Park Community School in Bracknell.


Join us once again for a fabulous event for the whole family on Saturday 27th June 2020. Sign up for a 5k or 10k run and enter your children into our now famous Teddy Bear Kids run, where they can follow our real-life teddy Sam and run, jog or toddle around our 1k course!


The 2019 Bracknell Samaritans Run was sold out with close to 650 runners in the 5k & 10k runs and over 120 children taking part in our Teddy Bear Kids Run!The 2020 Bracknell Samaritans Run is looking to be even bigger and better! We will be supported once again by our wonderful Run Ambassadors and are delighted that Diane Youdale, aka Jet from Gladiators will also be returning as our celebrity guest. Add to that a brand NEW medal for the 5k & 10k runners - the Bracknell Samaritans Run 2020 is an event not to be missed! (New medal design will be announced in Spring 2020.)

As well as being a fantastic family-friendly running event, the Bracknell Samaritans run is an important fundraising event for our local Samaritans Branch, based in Bracknell. The Bracknell, Wokingham, Ascot & District Samaritans Branch organises this amazing running event for the local community every year and all profits raised directly benefit the local branch. Samaritans offer a confidential listening service to those having thoughts of distress or despair, including those which may lead to suicide. Our local branch is fully operated by local volunteers and offers support to our callers 365 days per year.


With a choice of a 5K or 10K events and a Teddy Bear Kids Run, this running event is popular with social runners and families, as well as local running clubs. The fantastic feedback we receive shows our runners feel well supported by energetic marshals and a well organised, smoothly run event.


Don’t miss out, sign up today! Enjoy a fun, well-organised event whilst supporting your local Samaritans branch.

Regretfully we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Bracknell Samaritans Run due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.


This is not a decision we have taken lightly as it will have a significant impact on our fund-raising once again but as I am sure you will appreciate it is very difficult to plan anything with any certainty in the current climate whilst maintaining the necessary levels of health & safety for all those involved. 

We will be in touch with everyone who has already entered over the next few days to discuss the options available. Thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support of our charity.

We hope to see you at our 40th event on Saturday 25th June 2022. Please save the date!!

In the meantime, we hope you all keep well and stay safe.
