- RED RUN, LONDON
A 10k/5k charity fun run and 5K walk in support of HIV services
Since 2008, over £300,000 has been raised via the RED RUN
to support and strengthen the UK's response to HIV!
Last year the RED RUN raised
"The World AIDS Day RED RUN has become so much more than just a charity 10K/5k run and walk. It’s an important community event that brings together people and charities fighting against HIV stigma, tackling onward HIV transmission and providing much needed care and direct support"
The World AIDS Day RED RUN is a 10k/5k charity fun run or 5k walk in support of HIV services across the UK. All ages and abilities welcome.
This year we celebrate the RED RUN’s 10th birthday!
The 2019 RED RUN takes place against the backdrop of a momentous time in the world of HIV. We have seen a dramatic fall in new HIV diagnosis, particularly amongst gay men in London. London has exceeded the UNAIDS 90:90:90 target. Undetectable=Untransmittable is an evidence-based statement. The brilliant fact that a person living with HIV diagnosed early and accessing treatment is likely to live as long as someone of a similar age and background.
However, amongst the good news the challenge remains that not everyone, and not all communities are benefiting. 103,000 people are currently living with HIV in the UK (50,000 in London). HIV stigma is still a reality and there are still too many people undiagnosed and diagnosed late. Funding cuts to the HIV sector are still all too common despite the fact that HIV support services change lives.
Now is most certainly not the time for us to stand down! Take Action. Lace Up!
World AIDS Day RED RUN Village
Anchoring the RED RUN village will be the entertainment area powered by the iconic landmark on the city’s club scene The Eagle.
Drag girl band superstars DENIM will be the 2019 World AIDS Day RED RUN Mistresses of Ceremonies. Panels of the UK AIDS Memorial Quilt will be on display along with a pop-up AIDS Memorial and a small display of HIV and AIDS public health poster campaigns from Wellcome Collection.
