Londonist tickets are powered by YPlan.

Join these happy and healthy-looking people in running for charity.

Sport Relief is coming: time to run, swim or cycle for a very good cause. But even if you're not the active type, you can still have a blast for charity — book any of these events and at least a pound will be donated.

Enter the Games

If you like to get your sweat on, join one of over 50 London-based events for this year's Sport Relief Games. Join in a nationwide effort to get active and raise life-changing cash, by either running, cycling or swimming. Whatever your ability, from total novice to Olympic-level pro, you'll be helping people living incredibly tough lives both here in the UK and around the world. 18-20 March
