Become a charity fundraiser

All of the charities below have Champion Charity Entries. Click on any of the listings and find out more about the charity, the work they do and how they will support you throughout your training and on race day. If you like what you read just hit the register button to enquire to the charity that you’d like to run for. You can of course register your interest with more than one charity and make your final decision later. The charities will have more enquiries than Champion Charity Entries so you will need to convince them that you are committed to their cause and that you can raise the fundraising target to guarantee your Champion Charity Entry. Good luck!

If you already have your place in the event but wish to support one of the charities below, please find out more and 'Apply Now' to register your interest with them.
