Running for Charity

We have concluded acceptance of our 2016 charity partners and are not accepting further applications.

With running on the increase world-wide, many runners are looking not to just get fit, but to achieve new goals and to feel empowered by running "for a cause." A runner decides to compete in a marathon and then asks friends, family and others to sponsor them in support of a great cause. The amount pledged can be a lump sum or a set amount for each mile of the race they complete. In return the charity provides the runner with support during training and on race weekend.

When considering the charity fundraising option, please keep in mind that it is unfair to commit if you have no real intention or realistic possibility of raising the agreed fundraising target. Don't be put off by the amount that has to be raised; fundraising isn't as difficult as you might expect, especially if you start early and get family and friends to help. If possible, look to a charity that has meaning for you...whether in memory of a family member, to support a friend, or because of your own personal experience.
