We have seen another epic year of charity sport this year, with Olympic legacy events appearing all over the country we have been spoiled for choice. Ride London 100 launched and lived up to the hype becoming the London Marathon on wheels. We were even lucky enough to see Boris Johnson pushed up a hill by an avid charity runner on the day! Charity runs have really kept us all busy over the last 12 months but it is now time to look to Run for Charity 2014 as this year promises to be another incredible one.
Over the next 12 months, we will be keeping up to date with great races such as The Virgin London Marathon run for charity 2014, The Great North Run for charity 2014, The Royal Parks run for charity 2014, The New York Marathon run for charity 2014, The Bath Half Marathon run for charity 2014 and a host of new events to hit the running calendar. We are also getting behind the new obstacle running craze as we work with our partner the Spartan Race who last year showed it really is the new kid on the block in the fundraising and events sector. We are expecting even more from them as they look to become one of the best events in the run for charity 2014 calendar.
With so many events, all looking to raise money for charity, here is our guide of great runs that you can take on and use to raise money for charity.
For those beginner runners out there, why not look at a 5k run for charity in 2014 as these are the best way to get off the couch and begin your road to fitness. Anyone of any ability run a 5k for charity, a little grit and determination will take you a long way.
For those runners who are feeling a little more confident have a look at the host of fantastic 10K runs for charity that you can take part in and try and eminate one of the greatest sportsman of our time, none other than Mo Farah!
If a more serious distance is on the horizon it is time to try a half marathon, these are a fantastic way toreally test yourself and raise lots of money for charity.
Maybe you feel ready to step up and take on the mighty Haile Gebrselassie and run a marathon for charity, we are big fans of anyone that runs a marathon so go for it!
For the adrenaline junkies, who feel it necessary to don a helmet and be called a Spartan Warrior, or wear the orange head band and become a tough mudder we are getting right behind the new Torture Run craze so be sure to set up a fundraising page and help a charity with your hard work.
