SRG Wears it Purple for Heart Research UK

In September our Social Run Group members ditched their usual running attire and reach for all things Purple. Gathering in front of their local Up & Running shop for a 'Wear it Purple' run in support of our partnership with Heart Research UK.

Our members kindly donated £1 each to the charity to help kickstart the fundraising. It's great to see our staff, regular SRG members and some new faces coming together to support this fantastic charity!

Full support from the Bournemouth Store... rumour has they stopped for a post-run pint which boosted donations, thanks Bournemouth SRG (left picture).

Sign up to your local SRG

Fun, free and friendly, the Social Run Group or SRG for short is a weekly 5K that is perfect for runners of all abilities. It is a great place to begin running or share some time running together. 

To register, please just visit your local Up & Running store and speak to one of our team members. They will help you complete our new registration form and give you your new SRG card which you will need to bring each week. Before every run you will need to scan in with your card so we can keep an eye of numbers and keep track of your total amount of runs with SRG!
