PARTICIPANTS PACK (download now or receive a copy via email when you register)




It’s entirely up to you which ward, department or appeal you would like to support. Choose the one that means the most to you.

We ask adults to raise a minimum £30 each and children as much as they can. However, there is no limit so please make the most of this opportunity! Often, the easiest way to fundraise is online via JustGiving. Alternatively, a traditional sponsorship form is included in the participant pack – download a pack now or receive it via email when you register.

As it’s the 10th run, try and get at least 10 sponsors. Take this idea further and suggest £10 for each sponsor. That’s £100 towards your chosen ward, department or appeal and your fundraising target all wrapped up.

Your entry fee covers the cost of putting on the event and but does not include a donation to the charity. Please remember this when registering for the event and choosing to fundraise.

If you prefer, you can make a donation instead of collecting sponsorship. Please choose this option when you register.
