Run for SPANA abroad

If you’ve got the taste for travelling, how about helping working animals with your next trip by taking on a marathon abroad? Or if you’re living or working abroad and want to take part in a fundraising run, we encourage supporters to approach us with their own ideas for a marathon, half marathon, or fun run! SPANA runners have tackled marathons from Marrakech and Stockholm to Lisbon, Chicago and Tokyo! Participate in some of the world’s great running events, support SPANA, and get to see amazing sights while you’re at it.

Here’s a few event ideas to get you started.

Once you’ve secured your place

Get in touch with us by emailing [email protected]. We can’t wait to have you as part of our SPANA team! We’ll provide you with hints and tips on your fundraising, sponsorship forms and training advice. We’ll also provide you with your very own SPANA running vest or t-shirt to wear with pride on the day.

Thomas running the Lisbon Marathon for SPANA charity

‘When I chose to raise money for SPANA I knew it was a good cause and I knew they do great work, but it was after the run when it all made so much more sense. I was exhausted and in pain, but it was entirely self-inflicted, whereas the animals I was running in support of are probably more exhausted and crucially have no choice. My “suffering” was a one off, theirs daily.’
– Thomas Randall, Lisbon Marathon
