How do I register for a place running for my own chosen charity
I would love to run a charity event such as the great north run, so looking at half marathon or even full marathon but I would love to run for my very own unique chosen charity.. Is this possible to get a gauranteed place on an event ? if so how do I go about getting involved in this /
Obviously there are plenty of charities out there that will gaurantee me a place if I run for them but for my own personnal reasons I would love to pick a charity close to my heart and run for them instead.
Any information or advice on this would be perfect. Do you know of any events that I could simply just register and run...
If you want a place in the Great North Run you need to enter the ballot for a place. I think it opens in early Jan. If you go to greatrun.org you can sign up for the reminder service for when the ballot opens. If you got a place through this route you could raise money for any charity you wished. If you don't get a place then you would need to go down the charity route. Most of the big, well known charities will have places and tell you how much you would be required to raise. If you have a particular charity in mind then I would approach them to see if they have any places for the Great North Run or whatever event you are interested in.
I found out yeaterday that I am in the GNR 2013, got a ballot place... cant wait
