Rebel Runners, Medway – Running and Raising this Christmas

Fundraising Heroes header
Each week we recognise ‘Fundraising Heroes’ giving them the spotlight to highlight the incredible difference causes and charities across the UK make every day.

Rebel Runners 1
Rebel Runners
is an England-Athletics-Affiliated running club covering the Medway towns of Kent. The club was formed in January 2014 by a few local runners who created a Facebook Group to bring like-minded friends together. The idea quickly snowballed and today the club has over 350 members.

Rebel Runners pride themselves on being a wholly inclusive club, open to all. They aim to introduce running to as many members of the local community as possible and their volunteers offer programmes tailored to people living with various physical, non-physical and mental health issues.
