Create's running challenge

We have launched a brand new running challenge, in partnership with The W8ful Eight, to raise money to support our work. Every penny raised will help us empower vulnerable and disadvantaged children and adults through the creative arts.

The challenge

Join us for the #Cre8in8 challenge by running 8km on 8 consecutive days – or 8 half-marathons on 8 consecutive days – from 1 August 2020 to 8 August 2020 while raising money for our work.

In these uncertain times, we have all felt the life-limiting effects of the pandemic. Many of us have felt isolated, confused and frustrated.

Some of us, however, have felt this strain more than others. Young and adult carers, people with disabilities, children and adults with mental ill-health, older people … for many of these individuals, isolation is part of their everyday life – and the pandemic has only made it tougher. They deserve our support.

Create’s mission is to reach society’s most vulnerable children and adults with the transformative power of creativity. Our projects reduce feelings of isolation and boost wellbeing. We bring people together in creative arts workshops that inspire, ignite imagination and build confidence. We show people that they are not alone.
