Like all events it takes a lot of help to keep a race like the Sodbury Slog going. Below are organisations who go out of their way to help us to make sure we can put on this event. We are enormously grateful for their generous support. Please help us help them by supporting them whenever possible.

We are very pleased to support the following organisations, both with direct charitable donations and by offering bond places to enable them to raise their own funds through people running the event.
