The Exeter running event of the year, that you've all been waiting for is back in 2019 with a Bang! Pow! Boom! 

This time Age UK Exeter will be celebrating superheroes. Whether you want to run in memory of someone or honour someone special in your life, you can pick your own hero. Don't forget your fancy dress too! Will you dress as Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman or even make up your own superhero! Don't worry though, you can just be you if you like. You're all heroes!

Now, the important part!

Age UK Exeter is a local charity, delivering life changing services for older people and their families across the city. They don't receive any Government funding and are responsible for raising all the income needed to deliver their charitable services. Because of that they rely on your support so are asking everyone to raise sponsorship for taking on this awesome challenge. If you don't want to raise sponsorship, maybe you could ask friends and family to make a small donation. 

How to set up a fundraising page.

Getting sponsorship for your fundraising activities has never been easier thanks to the likes of Facebook, Virgin Money Giving and Just Giving. These social media sites and websites let you set up your own fundraising page that you can direct your supporters to so they can easily sponsor you with just a few clicks of a mouse or a few taps of a screen. When setting up your page and selecting your charity please make sure you select Age UK Exeter so that all the money raised stays within Exeter.

How Much Is It?

£24.95 (£22.95 for UK Athletics Members)
