Big Fun Run gives you the opportunity to fundraise for a local or national charity that really means something to you. As a former Big Fun Runner put it, “it felt good doing something to raise money for a charity close to my heart!”

You can run for one of our Affiliate Charities by either applying for a Charity Entry or by purchasing your Own Entry and choosing a charity that you’d like to fundraise for.

Make your Big Fun Run experience really count by running for charity!

Choose a Charity
Why run for charity?


When the training is getting tough and you’re wondering what you’ve got yourself into, the knowledge that you’re raising money for a cause you really believe in will give you a purpose and keep you on track right up to race day!


Your chosen charity will offer you fantastic support and encouragement with both your training and fundraising. Many charities are also present on race day to cheer you on and congratulate you beyond the finish line.

The Cause

Have you or a loved one been affected by a specific illness? Picking a cause close to your heart, gives you the drive and determination to dig in and do all your can to raise funds for that charity.


By choosing a charity to run for and asking your family and friends to support you, you will raise awareness for your charity and your cause. You never know, next year you might find you have company on the start line!

Team Work

Enhance your whole experience by being part of your charity’s team, from the moment you sign up right up to event day. Wear your charity vest with pride and enjoy the camaraderie amongst your fellow charity runners!
