Running for Charity in 2013
A Marathon, Half-Marathon and a 10km race, organised by the Rotary Club of Dartmoor Vale will be held on Sunday 20th October 2013. This event is the tenth annual race organised by the club and each one has been a great charity fund raising success. Approximately £27,000 was raised for charities in 2012, making a total of about £170,000 since the event was inaugurated in 2003. The success of the event has increased annually, so it is hoped that the funds raised this year will be even greater.
If you are thinking of running for charity, we are keen to support your efforts - send us whatever you collect, we will send the amount you raise, plus any Gift Aid, plus a share of the profits from the event to your nominated charity. This means (based upon 2012) that every £10 that a runner raises from sponsors could be worth £17 to the chosen charity. Remember, runners may choose any worthy charity, which could be a major national charity or simply their own local sports or social club.
There is no need to register the charity with us. Simply enter the name of the charity's name on the Entry form and on the Sponsorship form.
