If you’ve joined thousands of others in making a New Year’s resolution to get fit or simply want a challenge, then look no further –Fight for Sight is offering an 80% reduction in registration fee during January for an exciting range of running events during 2019.

 The charity is also re-launching its free virtual running app for the month, taking participants on an audio ‘journey to the centre of the eye’ while they run a 10k. The app can be done from any location, including on a treadmill.

 And for just £5 you can register for fantastic events including Vitality Big Half on 10 March, London Landmarks Half Marathon on 24 March, Simplyhealth Great North Run on 8 September or Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon on 13 October 2019.

 Places are still available, so sign up quickly to secure your place and start training! All fundraising proceeds support Fight for Sight and our research to stop sight loss from conditions including glaucoma and childhood inherited conditions. There are currently over two million people living with sight loss in the UK.

 Ed Jackson, events manager at Fight for Sight, said: “The virtual event was so popular last year that we’ve made it available again from the beginning of January. Just download the app and get running! And if you’re looking for a New Year challenge, whether that’s running a half marathon or trekking to Everest base camp, then why not apply now for one of our challenge events. We know that sight loss doesn’t have to be inevitable - it’s through our fantastic supporters raising money for research that we will find the next breakthrough. We are already on the cusp of making breakthroughs and your support can make all the difference.”
