Own Entry – Any type of entry (e.g. standard/late/club) which you pay for yourself. Runners who have purchased their Own Entry are welcome, but not obliged, to fundraise for any charity of their choice If you do wish to fundraise for an Affiliate Charity or the Official Charity, you can let them know via the ‘tell a charity I have my own entry’ link in your MyDetails account. If the charity is not an Affiliate Charity, you are welcome to run for them, however you would need to contact them directly yourself.
Group Own Entry – Each group member who wishes to link their entry to an Affiliate Charity must do so separately after completing their own entry. The group leader can only assign a charity to their entry via their ‘My Details’ account and is not able to do so on behalf of a group. This enables members of one group to fundraise for a variety of different causes.
When you advise a charity that you wish to fundraise for them, they will spend time, effort and money on building a relationship with you. Therefore, please do not do so unless you are very committed to fundraising.
