Each year as runners pull on their trainers and take to the streets to compete in the Run For All series, millions of pounds are raised for charities across the country.
Runners, walkers and joggers from Yorkshire and beyond take part in the Run For All series each year for the charity of their choice, with many runners choosing to even run in fancy dress. Over the years we’ve seen clowns, the Flintstones, caterpillars, you name it, take part all with one common goal - to raise awareness and vital funds for charity.
Whether it’s your first 10K or half marathon or your 10th why not select a charity and set yourself a new goal for the year ahead?
Your chosen charity will be there to provide you with fundraising support as you build up to race day and if it is one of the Run For All official partner charities, it may even be there on race day to cheer you along.
As you register for an event, why not check out our official partner charities and click to receive a fundraising pack? Your chosen charity will then be in touch to give you that race day support, it’s that simple. So why not get involved and start fundraising today?
If you have already registered to take part in an event but would like to receive a retrospective fundraising pack, sponsorship form or more information, please contact your chosen charity directly - details can be found on each event's charities page. Regrettably, Run For All is not able to provide information on behalf of charities other than the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.

Set the Scene
Talk about the work the charity you are supporting does, and how the money you raise will help, and explain why you cared enough to take action to help, be honest and open. This will help connect people to your cause and increase the chances they will donate and share. Don’t forget to set a target for your fundraising too, pages with a target raise 46% more.
Think of interesting ways to get people excited about your fundraising. Set fun targets for your page to surpass with forfeits once it passes each one. For example, ‘If I raise £5,000 I will run the whole course dressed as a dinosaur.” Use your imagination and have fun.
Images help. Fundraisers with photos on their page raise 14% more in total. A perfect excuse for a fun training selfie! Adding lots of images helps your supporters connect with you and your fundraising efforts.
Its not over until its over
20% of donations are received after an event has finished. So even after you have completed your run, don’t let the fundraising stop there. Share how you did, what taking part meant to you, and how it has affected how you feel. You’ll be amazed by how many extra donations you receive.

Don’t neglect all of your options to spread the word. Share on Facebook and Twitter, but also on email, WhatsApp and LinkedIn too. The best practice is to share, and share often. People will want to hear how you are doing and will be ready to help you. Need some examples of updates worth sharing? Why not tell people how your training is going, or talk about how even a small donation can have a big impact for the cause you are supporting.
