Our most up-to-date information can be found on our Facebook Events page, but here’s a taster of Reuben’s Retreat’s upcoming activities…
26th May 2019: Reuben’s Retreat does Edinburgh Marathon Festival
Fast & flat, this course was voted the fastest marathon in the UK by Runners World, ideal if it’s your first marathon or you are looking for a PB. The Edinburgh Marathon has sold out every year since 2008 and is the second largest marathon in the UK, behind only London.
This year Mike, Reuben’s Daddy is making his debut at marathon distance and we already have 10 runners signed up for either the marathon or half marathon distance. We would love to see lots of REUnners taking on this course!

Team Reuben HQ will support you and your training every step of the way 🙂
9th June 2019 Round and Round for Reuben at Lyme Park Ultra Relays
Enter as an individual or either a team of two or four running in relays, the aim being to complete as many laps as possible of the 7km (ish) Lyme Park loop during the 7 hours available, running Round and Round for Reuben!
This is a great team event in a stunning location – why not bring the family along to enjoy the park and get sponsorship per mile or per team total!

14th June 2019 Rockin’ for Reuben
You don’t need to be an Elvis fan to appreciate this fantastic night of great music, fun and wonderful entertainment, so get the date in your diary and give us a call (or visit our web shop) to reserve your tickets!
15th June 2019: Boots, Shoots and Brews
A great rural day out whilst supporting our cause! Meeting in Glossop before heading to the Old Boar Clay shooting ground for instructions and to test your aim with 25 clays. Then it’s down into the village of Old Glossop for a full tour and tasting of the local craft brewery, Howard Town Ales.
Following the tasting tour you’ll be served a wholesome platter of local ingredients in the bar and the chance to relive the day’s events knowing that the fun you’ve had has helped to sustain our work.
This is an ideal gift for Father’s day! Purchase your tickets through our web shop or call our offices.
18th June 2019 Professionals Open Day
Each year we host Open Days for professionals from all health and social care organisations, charities or voluntary groups to visit our forever home in Glossop and hear more about the support and activities that we provide for beneficiaries. It’s also a chance to see our existing facilities and learn about our ambitious plans and consider how we may be able to work together to support families in need.
There are two sessions, the first at 10am and second at 1pm. Please call us on 01457 680023 to let us know which session you’d like to attend, so we know how many people to expect. We look forward to seeing you there!
22nd June 2019: Anglesey 23
During the days (Saturday and Sunday) we will walk a total of 23 km from our base along the stunning Wales Coast Path and this beautiful island of Anglesey.
We’ll be based at the wonderful Tyddyn Mon Farm where we will camp and enjoy live music on Saturday evening. More details can be found here…
6th July 2019: REUBall 2019
Following on from the amazing success of REUBall’s move to Bury in 2018, we are delighted to announce we’re returning for our 2019 spectacular and tickets are now on sale!
Tickets are £55 per person and are available through our web shop or by calling 01457 680023. We ask for a £15 per person deposit with the balance due 8 weeks before the ball.

11th August 2019: Reuben’s Retreat does Manley Mere Triathlon
An Open Water Sprint Triathlon to raise sponsorship for Reuben’s Retreat.
Make 2019 the year you and your friends become open water triathletes whilst supporting Reuben’s Retreat!
Manley Mere is set in the beautiful Cheshire countryside and is less than an hour’s drive away. The area is great for picnics and the location has a restaurant, a picnic area and a bar.
Why not use this as your first Open Water Tri, although the location is great for your seasoned triathletes also.
- 750m swim in the lake. The swim will be marshalled by kayak and safety boat. The lake is safe and in August, the temperature of the water can be as high as 23C!
- 20km bike ride in country lanes.
- 5km run around the lake itself (trail shoes advised)
Enter as an individual or a team of up to 3 here: http://stockport-tri-club.niftyentries.com/Stockport-Ti-Cub-2019-Event-5-Open-Water-Triathlon-at-Manley-Mere?fbclid=IwAR3x9Gx_yUznXU-L2BPGFbOGG2Ce-6sfsyd-l2LwPRRO7QRHAaahotgFnRc
23-24th August 2019 (night climb): Snowdon SunRaise
We are really excited to be returning to Snowdon again this year! The first Snowdon SunRaise sold out super quick and was an amazing experience for everyone involved. Here are some of the comments we received:
“…a sunrise delivered on Angel wings, one of the most spiritual, miraculous and uplifting experiences ever .. I will remember it and all of you, all of my days”
“It was a privilege to be part of such a spiritual and emotional adventure, the angels did us proud with such an amazing sunrise.”
“Wow! What an achievement! so proud to be part of your special journey with such inspirational people.”
“Woweeee. Amazing… I’m still blown away by the whole experience xx”
The cost is £40 pp and you are requested to raise a minimum of £100 pp sponsorship (we have sponsor forms, or if using a giving page, please use Virgin Money Giving).
We will be booking return coach travel from Glossop for £23 per person, more details will be sent once you’ve booked on the Event with Breese.
Leaving Llanberis at 2am with head torches, we will head along the Llanberis Path to ascend Snowdon (or Yr Wyddfa to use its Welsh name) in the moonlight, reaching the summit in time to see the sunrise from one of the most beautiful destinations on earth. We will return along the same path in the first light of dawn, reaching Llanberis just in time for breakfast.

8th September 2019 Salford 10k
The City of Salford 10k is becoming one of the most popular and recognised 10ks in the North West and as it tends to fall around the time of Reuben’s birthday (10th September), we love to have as many runners as possible to take part and remember and celebrate his short but precious life.
