When most people think about fundraising events, they probably immediately think of running events. The tradition of distance-running and fundraising goes back many years, and has continued to grow in the digital age.

 

If you want to raise money for charity through a running event then there are distances and challenges to suit every age and ability: whether you want to take on a marathon, or just want to take part in a fun run, there is something for everyone.

 

When you have chosen the running event you want to take part in, see our fundraising tips below to make your page look wonderful, so that you can raise as much money as possible for the charity you care about.
