The Land's-End John o' Groats Association was established in September 1983 following the inaugural journey from Land's End to John o' Groats and then back to Land's End again.

However the Association is not a registered charity, even though the majority of members have raised money either for small local ones or large well known national ones. The Association is run on a not for profit basis by a committee elected each year at the Annual General Meeting and is regulated by a constitution. All full members are encouraged to participate in the running of the Association.
