Why Take Part?


The East London Mosque Promotes A Healthier Lifestyle & Giving Charity

Islam places great emphasis on the blessings of good health and on taking steps to maintain and enhance it.

Believers in Islam must take care of their spiritual, emotional and physical health. Our bodies, so amazing in complexity, are given to us by God as a trust; they should not be abused or neglected. Good diet and nutrition play a large part in maintaining the best possible health, as does a lifestyle incorporating exercise. Islam emphasises a simple, healthy diet combined with physical exercise.

Why Should Charities & Mosques Take Part?

This is a perfect opportunity for charities to get people involved, especially those who are passionate about keeping fit and active, or those who simply want a healthier lifestyle.

Your fundraisers will be seen by hundreds of people on the day of the race, and everyone who sponsors will learn more about the good work you do. This event gives great exposure, helps to build your reputation, and encourages people to donate to your cause. The minimum fee to register can easily be met by fundraisers; in the past an average of £300 was raised per participant.

How Will ELM Help?

The ELM website has had over 7 million visitors, and our Facebook page has over 300,000 fans. We will promote this event, along with your charity or mosque, using not only our website and Facebook pages, but also on twitter, and through this dedicated website.

We will provide support for fundraisers to meet their targets, through the provision of fundraising packs, workshops, fundraising mentors, and training days to help prepare for the run.

We will undertake all registrations, logistics on the day and provide runner numbers, t-shirts, medals and prizes for the winners.
