Join virtual event


We’ve partnered with LADbible and Samaritans to launch 8K with a M8 - a virtual event that challenges you and a mate to each run 4km and open up conversations about mental health with your friends, family and colleagues. 


When you’ve both finished your 4km you’ll get a digital medal, certificate and finisher photo. Share your achievement online with the #8KM8 hashtag to spread the message and encourage more people to take part and raise life-saving funds for Samaritans.


Plus for a small extra donation, you can both get a real physical medal to forever commemorate the time you helped change the conversation surrounding mental health.


Taking part is easy:


  1. Click the link above to go to the 8k with a M8 website, sign up and pay £8 for you and a mate to take part

  2. You and a mate complete 4km each to reach that 8km goal... you can run, jog, walk or cycle it. Fancy dress is optional 😉

  3. Upload your stats on the 8K with a M8 website for your digital medal and a selfie for a finisher photo, then share both on your socials! If you ordered medals they will arrive after the event closes.

  4. Use our hashtag #8KM8 and nominate another mate to take part. You could always run again if you are up for another challenge!


All profits from 8K with a M8 entries go to Samaritans. Samaritans (charity no. 219432) give people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others. They encourage, promote and celebrate those moments of connection between people that can save lives. During 2018, more than 20,000 people volunteered their time for Samaritans.


8K with a M8 also allows additional on-the-spot donations to a range of mental health charities. Every single donation makes a huge difference and goes towards changing lives.
