Do it for charity

Runners all over the world raise millions every year for charities by taking part in events of all sizes. Without these events the charities will be hugely impacted; but there is an alternative. For the foreseeable future virtual events will play a critical role in generating essential funds for good causes globally. Please help your favourite charity by raising whatever you can.

There are three easy ways you can do your virtual event for charity;

1. One-off donations - Make an instant donation when you enter, sending vital funds to your charity straight away.

2. Join a charity team - Pick a charity from the list when you enter. Join their team, set up a fundraising page, and start raising.

3. Get a charity place - Run for free by applying for a place with a charity below. Get personalised training advice and fundraising support.

For our top fundraisers we are introducing a series of medals to recognise your achievements. If you raise £500 we'll send you our bronze achievement award, £1000 gets you the silver award and £1500 gets you the Gold award. Each comes branded with the logo of the charity you ran for. Whilst we can't guarantee they will be made of the exact metal they are named after they will look amazing and come in a beautiful presentation box. We look forward to seeing plenty of these sent out in the coming months
