I already have a place in the race - can I run for Compassion?

Absolutely! Firstly, well done for signing up to take part in the race. That’s the biggest step to make. We’re thrilled that you would like to raise funds for Compassion and we’re willing to support you as much as you would like. Fill out the Get In Touch form and let us know about your race and where you would like the funds to go towards. We’ll be in touch to work out what size sports top you’ll need.

Can I chose where my fundraising money goes towards?

Yes, of course. If you’re raising funds for a cause that you’re particularly passionate about, you’ll see much greater results.

Just let us know how you would prefer the funds to be spent and we’ll be in touch to talk this through. We will have a specific Complementary Intervention that we will raise money for as a team, however it is perfectly find for the money use raise to go towards something different. 

What if I don’t reach the fundraising target?

There are no consequences for not reaching the fundraising target. We are confident that as a team you and Compassion will be able to not only reach but exceed your target. There are lots of great ideas of how you can fundraise so let’s get our heads together to plan the best way.

What time does the race start?

We advise you try and arrive in the race village by 7:30am; you should be making your way to the start line for 8:30am and the race will officially start at 9am. You should be able to find our Compassion stand in the race village on the day if you need any help or want to meet other runners.
