Run for charity wants to help you find a charity to run for.

Fundraising for charity is a fantastic and rewarding thing to do. There are literally thousands of charities to choose from, all supporting very different causes, all deserving your support. The number of charities to choose from can be overwhelming, so we have put together a brief guide to make it easier for you to decide which charity to support.
The own place runner term has appeared in the last few years to distinguish between a place that has been obtained directly from the race organiser and a place that is held by a charity. In other words, if you enter the Great North Run on the race website and receive a place you are an own place runner but if you contact a charity and they allocate you one of their places you are a guaranteed, charity or golden bond runner.
What is a golden bond? Many of the larger charity running events that you can enter will have a specific time period or total participant number which when passed or reached means that the race is closed. Golden bond places or guaranteed entries are places held by charities which are available after the race has closed to the general public.
