Raise money

Your entry fee 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 kilometre you'll accomplish. The minimum sponsorship target is £100 for the 10k and £50 for the 5k.

If you raise over £500 you'll be eligible to join our exclusive 500 club, more information can be found on the tab above.

Creating an online fundraising page is the easiest way to raise money. It takes a few minutes to set up and a link can then be easily shared with your friends and family on social media and by email. Remember, you're taking part in an amazing challenge - people will want to support you.

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. 


This is a challenging run and you'll need to have a good level of fitness to take part. Plan your training with expert tips and advice in our training zone. Take a look at our recommended kit list on what to wear on the day and what to take with you.
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.
