The World AIDS Day RED RUN is back!

Now more important than ever, the World AIDS Day RED RUN returns to Victoria Park, London. A 10k/5k charity fun run or 5k walk in support of HIV services across the UK. All ages and abilities welcome.

The 2021 RED RUN takes place against the backdrop of a momentous time in the world of HIV. We have seen a dramatic fall in new HIV diagnoses, particularly amongst gay men in London. London has exceeded the UNAIDS 90:90:90 target. Undetectable=Untransmittable is an evidence-based statement. The brilliant fact that a person living with HIV diagnosed early and accessing treatment is likely to live as long as someone of a similar age and background.

However, amongst the good news, the challenge remains that not everyone, and not all communities are benefiting. Over 100,000 people are currently living with HIV in the UK (50,000 in London) and 35,000,000 worldwide. HIV stigma is still a reality and there are still too many people undiagnosed and diagnosed late. Funding cuts to the HIV sector are still all too common despite the fact that HIV support services change lives.

Now is most certainly not the time for us to stand down! Take Action. Lace Up!
