Don’t just run, run for charity. Starting a GoFundMe for your favourite charity takes less than five minutes, and funds are sent directly to charity. Gift Aid is also processed and sent over for free.

How to start a GoFundMe
1. Follow our link below and start a GoFundMe
2. Set your target
You have the option to edit this at any time, we recommend starting with £300 for a half marathon and £500 for the marathon distance. GoFundMe sends all funds donated straight to charity, and you do not need to reach your target for this to happen. Your fundraiser will not automatically end when you reach your target.
3. Set up an account
Type in your email and select a password to continue creating your GoFundMe
4. Add a photo, title and tell your story
In your story, make sure people know all about your fundraising and your run! You can also write about your training so your friends know how hard you’re working.
5. Let the world know
Confirm your charity fundraiser and when you have finished writing your story, click “Complete fundraiser”. Now your fundraiser is live and open to receive donations. Make sure to email the link to close friends and share on Instagram, Facebook and other social media so they know to donate.
