There has been a massive upturn in the amount of people who are running in general and this has been reflected in the increasing number of competitors running for charity.
The huge number of runners now taking part have a real choice, as charities offer a range of contrasting packages. Not only do runners have a choice of the cause they run for, they also have a vast choice of where they run and over what distance. It is this choice that makes the whole charity running game quite confusing for the charity running rookie.
There’s no need to get overwhelmed by all this though. Running for charity is perhaps one of the most rewarding things you can experience and passing that finishing line will undoubtedly be one of your life highlights. The feel-good factor of succeeding in a personal challenge while supporting a shared cause, will be felt by all runners who choose to run for charity.
Places in some of the biggest events (such as The Virgin Money London Marathon) do cost the charities and it is of course in their interests to maximise their income for each and every place they secure. For some races, if the charity provides you with the entry, you will probably be expected to raise a decent sum of money.
The charities invest some of their money in their apparel, such as the fabulous custom running vests & t-shirts they provide to participants. These garments provide events with a plume of charity colour & branding, running through the streets of Great Britain.
Companies like ourselves produce some of the finest custom running apparel available to the charity sector. Vests and tees are fully breathable, whilst the sublimated print gives the charity the option of unlimited branding, matched colours and multiple logos.
