Poppy Runs are another way for communities to come together to remember, raising vital funds to help The Legion support the Armed Forces community. On crossing the line, you will be presented with a collectable Poppy Run medal. If you can’t make a Poppy Run and you’d still like to take part, we’ve got you covered with My Poppy Run where you can choose a time, location and distance that suits you.


Happy lady runners at the Poppy Run
