  1. How much sponsorship do I have to raise?

    We ask that everyone who enters The Great North Run aims to raise a minimum of £300.

    Please note: we do not use any of the fundraising money raised for this event to cover your Race Entry or Walk the Walk costs.  

    Fundraising deadlines:

    • £150 by Monday 24th June 2019
    • £100 by Monday 29th July 2019
    • £50 by Monday 7th October 2019

    All other fundraising must be with Walk the Walk before Monday 2nd December 2019.

    Failure to meet these deadlines may result in your Charity Place being cancelled. Please refer to your Terms and Conditions of entry.

    Fundraising is a fantastic way to raise money and awareness; we have had people do all sorts of things from bra decorating competitions, to bra car washes, falling out of planes and speed dating! There are many other fundraising ideas, so why not check out these pages to get you started, or create a unique idea of your own!

    Ballot Place

    For Ballot places, there is no minimum fundraising amount, just unite with us against breast cancer, be loud and proud, get fit and have fun.

  2. Can I give any of my sponsor money to another charity?

    Because everybody taking part in Walk the Walk challenges is united in a single aim, all your fundraising must be sent to Walk the Walk. By not sending all your fundraising money to Walk the Walk you may be committing an offence.

  3. Can I use any of my fundraising to pay for my travel expenses to the event?

    NO. That is not permissible and is an offence.

  4. Are you a Multi Challenger?

    Thank you for joining us on more than one challenge, please be aware that any money you raise over and above the minimum requirement for this challenge cannot be transferred to another year.
