When you’ve completed this challenge, why not share your achievement with other runners in our Facebook group. This is a great way to share your accomplishment and encourage others.

As well as providing an incentive to stay fit and healthy, our virtual challenges are a fantastic way to raise money for a worthy charity. 

Charities tend to struggle, especially when something out of the ordinary happens like COVID. The work they do is in many cases, paramount in helping people manage with a condition or helping researching cures for diseases.  This is why we encourage people to pick a charity which is close to your heart and support them by fundraising. 

It’s easy to get started and signing up for one of our virtual challenges is the first step.  We have a vast amount of different challenges from 5k to marathon races. We even have “any distance” challenges which are perfect if you want to set your own target. See our latest runs here.

Once you have decided which race you like, then why not use a website like JustGiving or GoFundMe.

When you create your fundraising page, it’s a good idea to make it personal. Explan the reason you are raising money for your charity, give people some background about what your chosen charity does and tell people about what you are aiming to accomplish.

Once you have created your fundraising page, then you’d be ready to share. Social media platforms are still an excellent way to promote your fundraising. 

Don’t forget to keep everybody up-to-date with your progress. Posting screenshots of your activities is a great way to let people know how you’re getting on. Posting a photo of your medal at the end of your challenge is also a great way to encourage others to either support you by donating or gives they the incentive to start their own fundraising.

At The Running Bug, we are always more than happy to help with your fundraising. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.

    My first marathon. was this one. I have been a runner for a while now but only had ever completed a half. This event inspired me to push myself further. The Running Bug make it easy to sign up and upload your evidence. I highly recommend trying one of their races.
