The Cheltenham Challenge presents a great opportunity to raise money and awareness for many different charitable causes. You can use the event to raise money for any charity of your choice.

Do you work for a charity?

  • Use the Challenge as a fundraising event to generate sponsorship from your supporters
  • We will handle the administration and the running of the event, you provide the entrants and keep all the donations that they raise on behalf of your charity.
  • Provide your supporters with your own sponsorship forms or set up fundraising pages on JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving
  • Link up with the event marketing and social media and shout about your cause – #CheltChallenge
  • Set up a stall in the event village. Email to book a free place.
  • And  don’t worry, we won’t attempt to contact your supporters for any reason other than to keep them up-to-date with arrangements for the event.
