We are very sad to announce that we have made the decision to cancel Rifle Run South 2021, due to take place on the 18th April 2021.
We appreciate how disappointing this news will be, especially as many of you transferred over from the cancelled 2020 events.
This was not a decision taken lightly and was ultimately made with the health and safety of our fundraisers, staff and volunteers in mind, as well as the needs of the charity. It is currently unclear if events such as Rifle Run will be able to take place in April and unfortunately the last 10 months have hit the charity very hard and we cannot afford to invest in the event with this uncertainty hanging over us.
At this point there are no plans for future Rifle Runs. We have loved working with British Shooting, EJ Churchill (South) and Catton Hall/Adventure Cheshire (North) and meeting all the fantastic people who have taken part over the three years Rifle Run took place.
We have contacted everyone who has signed up with more information and what to do next. Please check your e-mail. We know that you will all have questions but please do bear with us as we work through the cancellation process. We have put together a FAQ to hopefully answer most of your questions, which can be accessed along the top navigation bar of this page.

If your question is not answered below then please do not hesitate to contact us, but please bear with us in this busy time.
I'm signed up - what are my options?
You have two options:
- Request a refund of your registration fee. Please see below for refund information on both registration fees and fundraising.
- Donate your registration and fundraising to the Charity.
Why can't you commit to future Rifle Run events?
The charity is currently making plans for it's long term survival. Given the huge amount of uncertainty surrounding running events at the moment and we cannot commit limited charity resources to the event right now.
What will be happening next?
The Charity's priority is to continue to provide grants to soldiers, veterans and their families in times of need. We expect an overall increase in the number of requests from support from both individual and from partner charities whose income has been/will be affected by COVID-19.
If you are a soldier or veteran and at any point you have any difficulties, financially or otherwise there is help available. Please visit our grants page for further information.

We are delighted to have Buena Vista Entertainments supporting Rifle Run South and Rifle Run North.
For a third year, Dougie Robertson, one of their comperes/announcers, will be providing his voice to the safety briefings at the start and an enthusiastic welcome back to all of our fabulous fundraisers at Rifle Run South. Neil Boyle, another member of the Buena Vista Entertainments team, will be looking after compere duties again at Rifle Run North.
Our association with Dougie and Buena Vista Entertainments has been since 2013 at our Scottish event, the Cateran Yomp, where Dougie, as he says “puts the fun into fundraising!”
Dougie is currently doing digital game-show style quizzes for those big lockdown celebrations. Head over to As Seen on TV for more information.
