Sponsored events can be a great way to set yourself a challenge, meet your personal goals, raise funds for fantastic causes, and have fun while you're doing it.
Here's our selection of some of the best ways to get involved in sponsored events...
Skillshare International has places to give away at this year's Run to the Beat powered by Nike+ 2013 half marathon!
This is a fantastic event taking place on 8th September 2013. Not your average half marathon, the course has 14 music stages dotted around the route as it wends its way through London, providing motivational music and tempo-raising tunes to help spur you on to that elusive PB! In previous years performers have included Tinie Tempah and Calvin Harris, so this event really does attract some big names.
General places for the race have already sold out. However, we are excited to have a limited number of places available for our lovely supporters! These are rapidly being snapped up, so if you would like to register with us, please get in touch with Claire on firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 0116 254 1862.
To secure your place and run for us at this event, all we ask is for an initial donation of £30, and that you fundraise a minimum of £250 for us. We'll provide you with help and support in this, as well as providing you with your very own snazzy Skillshare running vest!
... there are still plenty of other races and events happening around the country, and throughout the year! If you already have a space at an event and would like to raise money for Skillshare, please get in touch via the details given above.
