If you’re fundraising you’ll confirm which charity you’re supporting via a drop down menu. Be careful to pick the correct one. Once your place on this event has been booked, your contact details will be passed to your chosen charity so that they can support you in your fundraising efforts.
CHARITY FUNDRAISING DEADLINES:
All sponsorship goes direct to the Charity via your online JustGiving page. At least 50% of the sponsorship target should be with the Charity 3 weeks prior to the Challenge. At this time the Charity pays a Fee for your place to the Organiser (similar to the Self Funding cost – or half of it for Mixed Funding as you’ve already covered half). Failure to meet the deadline may result in cancellation by your charity. The remaining 50%, and any extra, should be with your Charity no later than 4 weeks after the Challenge.
The walk will take place in most weathers but the leader will reserve final judgement on the day (in most cases) and maintains the right to abandon any walk if they feel the safety of themselves or any participant is at risk.
Under 18s taking part cannot sign themselves up – they must be signed up by someone over 18.
Once they’ve registered with us, it will take about 5-7 working days to add them onto our registration forms, and you can then sign up to your chosen challenge in aid of them.
We are happy to contact the charity on your behalf, please let us know the charity name, website, contact details (phone number and/or email) and the challenge you wish to take on.
Alternatively you can Self Fund your place and fundraise for them independently with no fundraising commitment.
Please note: the above is relevant for Charity Sponsorship or Mixed Funding places only. If you are entering as a Self Funder you can fundraise for any charity of your choice (only if you want to) & we do not need to be informed.
If you join as a Self Funder however, you have complete flexibility on who you fundraise for – with no targets or deadlines, and no cost to those charities.
