The Race takes place on the afternoon of Thursday 28 February 2019 from 1pm-6pm. As the event takes place on a weekday it is the perfect opportunity to get together with a team of your colleagues and have the afternoon out of the office for some team bonding and all in the name of raising money for a good cause! If you work for a company with regional offices why not enter a team in each location as some inter-company competition! Email us to find out how your company could pay the entry for multiple teams.

By registering for The Race you will be supporting our work with disadvantaged young people across the UK.

We support 11 to 30-year-olds who are unemployed or struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people we help are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.

We give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Fundraising for The Prince’s Trust will help change the lives of some of the hardest to reach young people in the UK.
