  1. How much sponsorship do I have to raise?

    We ask that everyone who enters The Great North Run in 2021 raises 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:

    • £120 by Monday 14th June 2021
    • £120 by Monday 12th July 2021
    • £60 by Monday 4th October 2021

    All other fundraising must be with Walk the Walk before Monday 11th October 2021.

    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. Can you send me a sponsor form?

    Everyone who takes part in our challenges as a Walker receives a sponsor form in their first Walker Pack. Unfortunately due to potential fraudulent activity we do not make this available online for you to download, so if you need another one please contact us.

    Or for an even quicker way, why not set up an online sponsor page here? It's quick and easy as well as helping us to save money!

  5. 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.
