Raising money for charity is the very reason Race The Distance was created.  We try not to make a huge song and dance about the fact at least £2.50 from every race entry goes to charity, as we believe it should be an additional bonus of taking part and not the reason.  And a lot of people will have unknowing contributed to charity. 

As of January 2018, we have raised just shy of £50,000 for charity and have supported the following causes;
