It was a dream, it literally couldn’t have been any better. The weather was cool but there wasn’t any rain, and the crowd were incredible from the get-go. I took out my earphones for the final three miles to soak up the atmosphere, and it was an honour to take part. Plus you feel like a legitimately professional athlete when you turn a corner to a sea of cheering faces… Which I massively enjoyed.

You CAN hit that sponsorship target!

Don’t be overwhelmed by the sponsorship, you’ll make it and who knows – you may even smash it!

As well as asking friends, family and colleagues for donations, you can also organise extra fundraising activities to reach your goal. When you sign up, you’ll receive a fundraising pack which has loads of ideas to help get you started. It’s split into two sections; covering quick fundraising ideas for busy people and larger fundraising activities such as setting up a pub quiz.

We are always here to help support you in reaching your goal, so feel free to get in touch with us any time. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Nathan Fuller on
