Event: South East London Spartan Super 2019

The 2019 Spartan season kicks off in April at St Clere, South East London. Steeped in history, St Clere was once owned by the father of Henry VIII’s second wife Anne Boleyn and has hosted visits from the likes of Mozart and Jane Austen. The site is only 40 minutes by train from central London and within sight of the M25, so it promises to please weekend warriors, trail hunters and obstacle racers alike.

There’s nothing mediocre about this middle distance race. The Spartan Super offers the ideal blend between distance and speed. Offering racers a true athletic test. If you consider yourself a more seasoned athlete determined to push beyond excuses, you just might have the mettle for a Spartan Super. Serving up 24-29 Spartan Obstacles and 8-10 miles of rugged terrain, the Spartan Super spares no one. Developed as the second race in the Spartan Trifecta, the Super is where you prove to yourself you’ve got everything it takes to face the Beast.

What difference will you be making?
Located in the heart of Westminster, we’re the UKs busiest homelessness centre, working in direct contact with vulnerable homeless rough sleepers all year round. Being a local organisation, we don’t have the overheads that others do, and can promise you that 91p in every £1 will be spent on helping homeless people. Running for us means you will be directly supporting the homeless people who need your help most, through our services which enable people to access housing, employment training, and professional support to overcome personal issues.

What difference could you make?

  • £100 could fund 4 full initial assessments for newly homeless people, creating their action plans and giving them access to hot nutritious meals, showers, laundry and GP services
  • £350 could enable a vulnerable homeless rough sleeper to have a course of specialist one-to-one mental health support sessions which will help them to positively cope with their problems and move forward. Considering that approximately two thirds of homeless people living on the streets have mental health problems which are often severely hindering their ability to move on from the streets, that is a massive contribution.

    What support will we give you?
    A high-quality running vest, personalised with your name.
    Advice on training and support to achieve your fundraising target.
    We’ll also be inviting you into our centre so you can see the difference you make first-hand, and so that we can say a massive thank you!
