One Running Movement is a collaborative evolution for movement and change #MoveForLife

One Running Movement was established to help create more active communities, provide social intergenerational connectivity and support the creation of healthy habits.

How it all started

One Running Movement was trialled in the school year 2016 / 2017 in Shropshire as part of Shrewsbury Half Marathon event weekend with 2 schools and 75 pupils. The event and format was such a success that Shropshire will have had over 4,500 pupils taken part in Schools Running Movement by the end of 2020. The expansion to national events and One Running Movement came from these grass roots to become what ORM is today. 

Over 10,000 children nationally will have taken part in One Running Movement by the end of 2020, either virtually or through a final event, completing Schools Half Marathon or Schools Marathon.
We will have #gifted over 2,500 places by the end of 2020 as part of our aims and collaborative #giveback with our Partners and be on track for our 2021 ideals by all working together.
We would like over 250,000 people to have joined us at One Running Movement by 2023 and have gifted over 100,000 places. 

Who we are

We are a group of like minded individuals from the Sports Industry who are working in unity and motion to drive One Running Movement forwards together.

All of our teampartners and supportive friends are passionate about sport and the benefits of movement.
By working together as ONE we can make a difference to our current and future generation’s health and wellbeing through running, movement, general sport education through a free easy to access channel and encouraging regular daily #MoveForLife. This can be on your own, at your school, with friends, with family or at one of our events running with community and being part of the movement.
