The Running Bee Foundation was founded and is supported by Sports Tours International – the UK’s leading sports travel business.
Our Story:  For more than 10 years, Sports Tours International has been helping people to get active across the North West, by organising a series of high profile running events.
These events provide a real focus for their local communities, encouraging more people to get active and developing a sense of local pride.
Starting from 2019, ALL the profits from Sports Tours International’s 9 running events will go to The Running Bee Foundation to be invested back into the communities where these events take place.
The Running Bee Foundation aims to improve the health and well being of local residents and to help tackle the challenge of childhood obesity.
It will do this by making grants available to community groups and local charities in the towns and cities where our events take place.
So get involved, enter our races and help those charities and good causes in YOUR area.
The 2019 Running Bee Foundation race programme includes:
  • X-Trail 10K - Tour of Tameside
  • Hell on the Fell - Tour of Tameside
  • Hero Half Marathon - Tour of Tameside
  • Dr Ron Hill Hyde 7 - Tour of Tameside
