We are aware of the uncertainty that surrounds our lives because of Covid-19, and that some events may be postponed. We will be checking these events regularly and will update this page with any new advice or announcements.

If you have any queries, please email events@cafod.org.uk.

More upcoming events

You can also run, walk cycle or anything else you want to in any number of events. Please email events@cafod.org.uk if you have an event in mind or would like us to suggest an event!

Other walking and trekking events

And there are loads of other events to choose from, and others you could arrange yourself!

By buying your own place in an event, you'll save CAFOD this upfront cost and we can ensure all of your sponsorship goes towards our essential work overseas. We won't set you a sponsorship target but will support you in raising as much as you can.
