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.
