Official Charities

If you would like to run for one of our official charity partners you will need to contact them directly to apply for a charity place. If you have already entered the race, that’s not a problem, you can still fundraise for them by contacting them to requesting a fundraising pack.
Once you have decided which charity you would like to run for and secured your place, it is time to start fundraising by setting up a JustGiving fundraising page!
