Looking for an NSPCC place?
We have a number of guaranteed NSPCC places available for the Run to the Beat Half Marathon.
In return, we ask for a registration fee of £30 and ask you to commit to raising a minimum sponsorship of £300. We will then send you a fundraising pack and running vest, and you'll receive our full support.
Want to get your own place?
You can secure your own place from the event organisers when registration opens in March. If you do get your own place at Run to the Beat, we'd love to welcome you to our team.
We'll send you a fundraising pack and running vest and you will receive the same support as the rest of our runners. There is no minimum sponsorship commitment, we just ask that you raise as much as you can.
