What are you looking for in a charity place application?

We're looking for applications that provide lots of detail about why you would like to run for Alzheimer's Society and multiple ideas about how you might fundraise. The more detail the better!

When do I have to raise the minimum sponsorship for a charity place by?

We would expect you to hit your minimum pledge target 6 weeks after marathon day. Our Running Team will be there to support you every step of the way with fundraising advice and materials.  If you think might struggle, please contact us so we can support you with your fundraising or give you extra time if necessary.

Can I change my charity place application?

What happens if I don't raise the minimum sponsorship for a charity place?

It's incredibly important that each charity place runner meets the minimum sponsorship pledge, to help us fund vital research and services for people affected by dementia. There is no legal obligation to make up the shortfall, but if you don't meet your target it is likely to impact on your future chances of gaining an event place with our charity. Please do contact us if you require fundraising advice. In some circumstances it will be possible to have some extra time to meet the fundraising requirement.

When will I know if I have a charity place?

All charity place applicants will be notified by the end of November 2021.
