There’s a wide variety of races available, giving everyone the opportunity to get involved – so why not sign up and join Team JTYAF today?

The 2018 Bournemouth Marathon Festival will take place on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October 2018 and will include the following races:

Supersonic 10k Road Race
Supernova 5k Road Race

Sunday 7th October

Entrants who run for the JTYAF will know that every step they take, and every pound they raise, will make a huge difference to the lives of local young people.

What we’ll provide

A JTYAF fundraising pack
A JTYAF t-shirt or running vest
Regular e-newsletters to keep you up to date
JTYAF supporters cheering you on along the route

Our JTYAF Packages for Charity Place Runners

BMF Full Marathon: £250 minimum sponsorship
BMF Half Marathon: £150 minimum sponsorship
BMF 10K: £75 minimum sponsorship
BMF 5K: £50 minimum sponsorship
Junior races: £20 minimum sponsorship

The JTYAF have pre-paid for a limited number of Charity Place Runners and they are therefore expected to raise the minimum amount of sponsorship stated for their chosen event.  If the minimum sponsorship level isn’t reached it will result in financial loss for the charity (a marathon place costs the charity over £150).   The registration fee is incorporated into the minimum sponsorship amount and charity place runners will be required to submit at least 50% of their minimum sponsorship no later than 2 weeks before race day.

Entry as an Own Entry runner means that you apply and pay for a place in your chosen race and then opt to raise money for the JTYAF.  This way the charity is not charged for your place and there is therefore no minimum sponsorship commitment.   We do however hope that you will raise as much as you possibly can.   As an own entry runner, we’ll provide you with the same benefits as a charity place runner.

To Enter
To apply for a charity place visit the JTYAF entry page, choose your race and then just follow the instructions.  To apply for an own entry place visit the BMF homepage and then tell us that you are running for the JTYAF through ‘my details’ in your account.

The Dorset Plane Pull 2018

The Plane Pull is one of our favourite events and this year will mark it's 10th Anniversary.  The JTYAF has been supported by the event from the very beginning and we are hoping that this will be a really successful year as the JTYAF is also commemorating 10 Years since it's formation. 

In 2017 our old faithful's ‘Stig’s Boys’ pulled with a fantastic time and who knows maybe 2018 will be their year!

The Dorset Plane Pull involves teams of no more than 20 people pulling a Boeing 737, weighing in at 35,000Kg, a distance of 50 metres in the quickest time possible?  Organised by Richard Griffin, and Peter and Kyrie Feltham this will be the 10th Dorset Plane Pull and it is sure to be a fantastic event.  If you think you have what it takes and fancy something a bit different, get a few mates together and enter as a team. Alternatively why not register as an individual.

You don’t have to pull to enjoy the event, watching is just as much fun as taking part. The day plays host to a number of other activities including BBQ, stalls, live entertainment and even something for our younger spectators.

Come along, spread the word, support the teams. Invite your friends and family to come and join in the fun.

To find out more visit:  www.planepull.co.uk and also like the Dorset Plane Pull page on Facebook which will keep you up to date with all their news.

JTYAF Fly Fishing Event

Holbury-Lakes-Trout-Fishery-Lakes.jpg

You are invited to take part in a JTYAF charity trout fly fishing event at Holbury Lakes near Romsey.

If you have never fly fished before you should find it a very enjoyable and sometimes challenging experience which will hopefully get you 'hooked' and wanting to go again.
The lakes have been closed for the day for this event.

Ticket price is £75 for 4 fish which includes a donation to the charity and a day rod licence if required. All tackle will be provided. Tea and coffee will be served during the day and BBQ hot dogs will be provided at midday.

This event is open to all. There will be experienced anglers on hand who can give tuition on casting, fly fishing techniques and an understanding of the sport. 

For those who have not fished here before, it is an extremely scenic location in the Hampshire countryside and reaching a bag limit of four trout is achievable.

There will be a prize for the biggest fish and heaviest bag of fish. Same person can only win one prize!! one of which is a three fish day ticket.

This should be a very enjoyable and social occasion whilst catching some of the hard fighting blue, rainbow and brown trout that the fishery is well known for.

Fishing starts at 9.00 am but please arrive from 8.30 to allow for tickets, tutor and tackle allocation and safety briefing.

Wellies, hat and sunglasses advisable.

“Since 1664” 166.4Km Yomp on the South Downs Way
May
27
to May 28

“Since 1664” 166.4Km Yomp on the South Downs Way

The Since 1664 Yomp is a Royal Marines focused event and supported and promoted by the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, but the JTYAF is privileged to have been invited to take part and we have bought three charity places.

Since 1664”  2014 was a unique Yomp, coinciding with the Royal Marines’ 350th Birthday and the event is now in it’s 4th year.  For 2017, the challenge is 100 miles.

Departing from King Alfred's statue soon after first light on Saturday 27th May and following the official 100 mile route, with minor detours to get to suitable scran points and finishing just beyond the bottom of Beachy Head a full 166.4Kms gets Yomped!

Every serving or veteran Royal Marines Commando who has undertaken this Yomp has said that it is every bit as challenging as any of the Commando Tests.  The climb (and decent) is the equivalent of 40% of Mount Everest but over 100 miles and in 36 hours.  It is further than London to Portsmouth.  It is a huge physical challenge, but it is an even more immense mental test.

For more information please visit the Since 1664 Yomp website or phone Pete on 07792 121 645

If you are interested in taking on the Since 1664 Yomp for the RMCTF and the JTYAF please contact us for the charity discount code.

We will ask for a minimum amount of £500 to be raised in sponsorship.

The first £166.40 of any sponsorship raised will go to the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund (RMCTF) and the £150 entry fee will be returned to the JTYAF.  Of the remaining £183.60 20% (£37.72) will go to the RMCTF and the JTYAF will receive £146.88.

So if you raise at least the minimum £500 the RMCTF will benefit by £204.12, the JTYAF £146.88 and the event costs will be covered too.  Everyone’s a winner!  However, we hope you’ll raise even more than £500 in support of these two great charities.
