    Get ready for your run

    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. 

    Your entry fee only covers the cost of organising the event, such as venue hire, toilets and medical cover.

    This run is a fundraising event, it is the money you raise that powers our life saving research. We ask that you raise £10 for every mile you'll accomplish. The minimum sponsorship target is £130 for the Half Marathon, and £30 for the 5k.

    If you raise over £500 you'll be eligible to join our exclusive 500 Club, you can find out more on the tab above.

    Create an online fundraising page - it's the easiest way to get sponsored. Share your page on Facebook, Twitter and by email so your family and friends can sponsor you. Don't forget to use #heartrunners and connect with others taking part.
