Many of our runners use their place to raise money for a charity close to their heart

Each year our runners raise between £1.8 and £2.2 million, contributing to charities locally, nationally and internationally.

Set up your online fundraising page now and Enthuse will send your donations directly to your chosen charity, and recover any gift aid for them.

Five Tips on How to be a Fantastic Fundraiser

1. Make it official

Make sure you’re signed up via the official Bath Half fundraising platform. This gives you a fundraising page that includes your charity’s branding and ensures the money you raise is included in the official total at the end of the event. If you haven’t already, you can start setting up your page on the Enthuse website.

2. Story time

When someone lands on your profile page, it’s important to tell them about your chosen charity and what it means to you. Even if they know you, they might not know the full story behind your marathon challenge.

3. Back yourself

While your thoughts will naturally jump to how others can donate to you, you might want to get the ball rolling yourself. Donating to your own fundraising page will help bump up the totaliser and it shows everyone how committed you are to your cause. Fundraisers who self-donate raise just over 50% more.

4. Keep everyone posted

Whether it’s posting a run from Strava, a picture of your training or a paragraph about how you’re feeling, updates on your fundraising are a great way to keep people in the loop. You’re working hard, so don’t be modest – show everyone your progress.

5. Share on social

The final (and arguably most important) tip is to share your fundraising page on all your different channels. The most successful fundraisers post about the event every day, so try out the different social media platforms and see which works best for you.

About a quarter of people say they didn’t donate to people running for a cause as they either forgot or didn’t have time when asked. So, don’t be shy about frequently posting your fundraising page.
