Why run for The Outward Bound Trust?

The Outward Bound Trust is a charity with a difference, we believe young people are capable of more than they thought possible. We work with over 24,000 young people every year, developing skills that enable them to engage successfully in education, training and employment and ultimately help them to make a more positive impact in their own communities.

Through adventurous journeys using the mountains, seas and lochs on our doorsteps they develop confidence, self-motivation and resilience – giving them the skills to make more of their opportunities in life. With nearly 1 million young people aged 16-25 not in education, employment or training in the UK, our work has never been more important. With your support, we can make a difference to the lives of young people.

Run the Virgin Money London Marathon for The Outward Bound Trust and help us to change young people's lives for the better.
