Whizz Kidz

Whizz-Kidz is a dynamic charity all about giving disabled children and young people the independence to enjoy an active childhood - at home, at school and at play. By providing them with customised mobility equipment, training, advice and life skills, we actually give them something much more important; the independence to be themselves. We make an immediate and life changing difference to their lives and their families. We are virtually 100% reliant on voluntary funds so we urgently need your support to enable as many young people as possible to lead an active childhood. Join Team Whizz-Kidz and benefit from our legendary runner support package. Your steps will help a disabled child take theirs. We have places in New York, London, Berlin, Paris and many more! We look forward to hearing from you.

Macmillan Cancer Support

Macmillan Cancer Support is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by cancer. We provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support and push for better cancer care. There are now two million people - nearly double the previous estimate of 1.2 million - living with, and after, cancer. 99% of our work is funded by voluntary donations, which is why we need your help to continue raising valuable funds to support Macmillan's work. Together, we can make a difference. Here at Team Macmillan we understand what it takes to train for and complete a running event whatever the distance. Our huge support network will be there for you every step of the way, while you raise money to change the lives of people affected by cancer across the UK. We'll provide you with lots of fundraising advice, training and nutritional tips, and we'll be there on the day to cheer you around the course! So, put on your running shoes and take part in the challenge of a lifetime! We look forward to welcoming you to the team.

The Pace Centre

PACE is a ground-breaking children’s charity that transforms the lives of children and young people with physical disabilities. Fundamental to our approach is a belief in every child’s ability to learn and make progress, whatever the physical or sensory challenges they face. Our overriding goal is to help children and young people with physical disabilities to achieve their full potential and to be as independent as possible in their current and future lives.

Asthma UK

5.4 million people in the UK now have asthma and 10 per cent of all children have been diagnosed by a doctor as having asthma. Every seven hours somebody dies from asthma, yet 90 per cent of these deaths are preventable. At Asthma UK we are working to prevent these deaths by understanding more about the causes of asthma and to free people with asthma from its effects. Joining the team in green and support Asthma UK!

Guide Dogs

Guide Dogs provide life-transforming freedom, independence and mobility to thousands of blind and partially-sighted people throughout the UK. We receive no government funding and depend entirely on voluntary donations to provide our services. Go for Guide Dogs and take part in a range of running events, from the 10k Great Manchester Run to the Virgin London Marathon. Guide Dogs will be with you every step of the way providing you with a full support pack complete with technical Saucony running top, fundraising tips and training hints. We would be delighted if you chose to run for Guide Dogs and we promise to give you the highest level of support through every stage of your race experience.
