Previous Team Step One runners said: 
”I had a great time on the day of the run! The Great West Run is a large, well-organised event with an energetic atmosphere and there’s plenty of encouragement and support on the way round the route which really helped keep up the motivation right to the end.” – Emma

“I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the Great West Run 2023 and raising money for Step One Charity was a bonus. It was such a great atmosphere on the day, so many people were there to help me along the way and knowing I was running for a great cause just added to that. Thank you to all the volunteers and everyone involved at Step One, it is an experience I won’t soon forget.” – Isaac

Be a volunteer!

Step One will host a water station on the running course as well as have a stall in the event village. It’s a great way to support the charity, support the runners, and get involved in a fun-filled community event.

“I had such a great time volunteering for Step One at the Great West Run’s water station. It gave me the opportunity to help a cause I believe in without having to run! The atmosphere standing on the sidelines is unbeatable and such a fun way to be involved.”
