Cambridge Half Marathon 2021

Save The Date

How would you like the opportunity to run alongside us in the Cambridge Half Marathon which is held this year on Sunday 17 October?

We will be thrilled if you decide to join us and help raise money and awareness on Myelopathy.org.

Not only will you joining us, but there will be thousands of other runners there as well, enjoying one of the UK’s biggest and most beautiful half marathons. Also, because the roads are closed and the circuit is flat, it is ideal not only for first timers but also for experienced competitors looking to achieve their personal best.

Help Us Reach Our Target

  • Each participant starts the run with a £30 non-refundable deposit and a commitment to reach a target of £300.
  • We understand the target of £300 sometimes falls short. Each runner is committed to paying the shortfall, if any, as their own contribution. This may sound like an unreachable target, but don’t let this startle you. Based on previous runs, runners raise on average £500 each. As a runner you will be promoted on our social media pages and web site and, with the support of your friends and family, this target can be easily achieved.
  • You have the freedom to raise money in any way you choose. We recommend JustGiving.com, because donations go directly to the charity.
  • You must be 17 or over on the day of the event, Sunday 17 October 2021, to participate. 

Fundraising Tips

The easiest way to start your fundraising is to set up a JustGiving page.

You’ll need to make sure that your page stands out by personalising it as much as possible. The three easiest ways are to:

  1. Add a photo of yourself and a link to this website.
  2. Set a fundraising target. We’d encourage you to be as ambitious as possible with what you hope to raise.
  3. You’re doing something amazing so make sure you write about your personal motivation for taking on your challenge!

According to JustGiving, fundraisers who do these three things raise, on average, roughly 50% more than those who don’t!

Don’t be afraid to move away from just relying on donations from friends and family as well. Get creative and plan some activities to support your fundraising. Whether it’s a bake sale or a quiz night, there are number of great ways to get the sponsorship rolling in.

GOOD LUCK AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
