Get ready

Raise money

We want to put a stop to the devastation caused by heart disease, through our life saving research. We rely on your fundraising to ensure this vital work can continue. Together we will improve the lives of babies born with heart defects, find the genes that cause inherited heart conditions and one day find a cure for heart failure and heart disease. 

We are asking everyone to raise £10 for every kilometre ran at this event. 
Create your fundraising page

Creating an online fundraising page is the easiest way to raise money, it takes a few minutes to set up and can easily be shared with friends and family, on Facebook, Twitter and by email. Remember you're taking part in an amazing challenge - people will want to support you. Don't forget to use #Heartrunners and connect with others taking part.
We've created a series of profile pictures to add to Justgiving or social media, which are a great way to let everyone know you've joined the fight against heart disease. We also have lots of great fundraising ideas and fundraising downloads available online. 

Matched Giving 

Lots of companies operate Matched Giving schemes that can double the amount of money you raise. Find out if your employer operates a scheme and they will match what you raise. Remind them it's tax efficient for them and it'll benefit BHF lifesaving research. 

Get fit for your challenge 

Get prepped for your run and plan your training with expert tips and advice in our running training zone.

Make sure you have the right kit

Take a look at our recommended running kit list for what to wear on the day and what to bring with you. You'll receive your participant number in the post just before the event.

Why not treat yourself to some BHF professional running kit available in our online store. The stylish tops are made from breathable fabric, optimising airflow whilst you run. Look and feel good, and help us to continue to win the fight against heart disease at the same time.  

Volunteer for us 

Our events cannot happen without the help of our fantastic volunteers. If you would like to help out in the lead up to this event or on event day then please get in touch with us and we'll send you more information.
