How to Enter

Charity Entry

If there's a charity close to your heart and you'd like to run The Big Half for them, you might be able to secure a charity entry into the race.

What are charity entries?

A number of charities have entry places in The Big Half. They allocate these places to runners on the basis that they will raise an agreed amount of money for the charity.

How do I apply for a charity entry?

To apply for a charity place, you'll need to contact your chosen charity directly to see if they've got any places to offer you.

Search the charity listings then get in touch with your charity. Please note, there can be more runners interested in running for each charity than there are charity places available, so the charities will select their runners based on the runner's connection with the good cause and how much money they are realistically able to raise for the charity.

When should I apply for a charity entry?

You can register your interest with your charity at any time and they'll keep you up to date.

Raising Money

Once you’ve secured a charity place, set up your Virgin Money Giving page and let all your family and friends know who you’re running for. Set your page target based on the amount you need to raise for your charity place so people know what your goal is.
