I would say how you run is more important than whats on your feet, Im also someone who over the past twenty years or so has worn almost every form of footwear. However as the years go on I find a decent pair of shoes does help with those little aches and pains. I have kept to the same shoe for the last 10 years and find changing them every 500 mile or so helps
Perhaps I should contact him and let him know about this post and he could go into detail, I suppose like most fund raising companies/ websites a percentage must go to the running of the company. From what is on the website they do not charge charities monthly or annual fees.
I make no apologies for that, I used the site, I ran the race, I raised money for charity. Job done. Im not promoting some multi national company here, I thought I was raising awareness on another method to help a good cause, best intentions and all that.
If I raise a debate about how people are raising money all the better, use any method you please, as I have said I have used various methods over this years this happens to be the latest way I have raised cash for charity.
Not a founder although I do know one of the chaps who set this up, he has worked in the charity sector for many years. I work for the government in the public sector. The weekend gone I and 5 colleagues took part in a charity run and having knowledge of this site decided to use it to raise funds, colleagues used other methods also. I found it a positive experince which raised money for a good cause. this is a genuine post to raise awareness, not to offend. I am getting nothing from this in fact the founder has no idea I have posted this.
