There are over 100 million working horses, donkeys and mules in the world supporting the lives of 600 million people, helping them to earn a living and provide for their families. Brooke is a global charity working with owners, communities, governments and international organisations to make lasting improvements to these animals’ lives.

    The Virgin Money London Marathon is a truly inspiring event, with over 39,000 people taking part every year. Running for Brooke will improve the lives of working horses, donkeys and mules across the globe. Being part of Team Brooke means you will be supported every step of the way. 

    This is the third run I’ve done for Brooke and my most amazing experience so far. The atmosphere is just unforgettable. I can’t wait to run again next year. The support of friends, family and clients has been brilliant. I couldn’t recommend running for Brooke highly enough: it’s a great cause and they’re a great team.
