What is Miles for Moggies?

Cats Protection Miles for Moggies is a virtual running challenge. It is open to everyone to take part, whether you're a keen runner or challenging yourself to your first 5k.

How far do I have to run?

You can decide which challenge would best suit you! There are four distances to choose from:

  • 5k
  • 10k
  • Half marathon (13.1 miles)
  • Marathon (26.2 miles)

When does the run take place?

Registrations are open now for this year's challenge. You can choose your own date in May for your run, or you can join us for our virtual race weekend from Saturday 25 to Monday 27 May to run ‘together’!

Where can I do my miles?

Anywhere in the world! This challenge doesn't have a set location, so you can complete your run local to you or at a destination of your choice.

Choose my distance

How much money do I have to raise?

It costs £20 to sign up, which includes your medal, and this will support our work to make sure every cat finds a loving home. You can also set up a JustGiving page and fundraise for your challenge, meaning your miles will make an even bigger impact on the cats that need our help.

Can I get a t-shirt to wear for my run?

Absolutely! You can buy a brand-new purple Cats Protection tech t-shirt to wear with pride during your challenge. The t-shirts cost £18 and you can choose to add a t-shirt as an option on the registration form. The t-shirt size guide can be found here.

Why should I do Miles for Moggies?

You’ll feel amazing inside and out as you conquer your Miles for Moggies run. Miles for Moggies will encourage you to tackle a new personal challenge to benefit both your physical and mental health, and all the while you’ll know that your efforts are helping to make a better life for cats.

I'll do it for the cats!

How your miles will help moggies

Without your support, the teams at our 34 centres and around 200 branches simply wouldn’t be able to provide the incredible level of care they do on a daily basis for cats in need of our help.

  • £20 could cover the cost of seven cat tunnels, offering a space for both play and a sense of security for cats and kittens in our care
  • £50 could cover the cost of feeding 250 cats in our care for a day
  •  £100 could provide a microchip scanner to one of our facilities to check all new cats coming into our care and help reunite them with their owners

You can choose any local Cats Protection branch or centre to receive 100% of your registration fee and the funds you raise from your challenge, helping the cats in your area.

How do I sign up?

You can register for our Miles for Moggies challenge in just a few simple steps.

  • Click one of the sign-up buttons on this page
  • Nominate a local Cats Protection branch or centre to support through your challenge
  • Choose your run distance and add a t-shirt (if you wish)
  • Complete the sign-up form
