We will also support you with any help or resources you might need, to kick-start your fundraising. Please feel free to get in touch using the contact form below.

Running club affiliated participants will pay £3.50 and everyone else will pay £5.50.

What support will I receive?

Run for Link Ethiopia and we will be on hand to give you the advice and information you need to achieve your fundraising goals. You will also get a spot in our hall of fame!

When and where does the event take place?

The event will take place on 5 separate occasions: 30th May; 27th June; 25th July; 29th August; 26th September.
The route starts off on Lancashire & Morecambe AC track, and veers off towards Snatchems. The course then takes a U-turn and returns on a similar path.

What is the course like?

This course is fast, flat, and completely free of traffic. Please click here for more information.

How much should I fundraise?

Entry into this race is self-funded and so there will be no fundraising minimum – just raise as much as you can.
We will provide each team member with information to set up an online fundraising account, a fundraising pack, and guidance and support from our fundraising team to help you achieve your goals.
