Six Believers run Manchester Marathon In Your Own Time Challenge

There are six amazing believers that are taking part in the Manchester Marathon in your on time event for The Believe and Achieve Trust. The six believers are all trying to raise as much awareness as they can whilst raising vital funds for the charity.

At Believe and Achieve we raise awareness for meningitis whilst giving out grants to disabled children to help them get involved with sport and every day life. We are a small local charity who solely rely on funds to give out the grants to children, which can change so many lives for the better.

How the race works?

You have to complete the distance of the Manchester Marathon 26.2 miles within the month of October. You can complete it in as many runs as you like and doesn’t matter on speed, as it says in the title it’s all in your own time. You can choose your own routes too which makes it easier to complete by social distancing and you can experience different views along the process. Every runner who completes the 26.2 miles receives their own quality finisher items such as a Ron Hill t-shirt and a 2020 finishers medal.

How you trace your runs?

You have to keep track of all your runs on an app of your choice when at the end you’ll send in a summary screenshot of all the runs to show the total distance. At the end of the challenge you have to upload the results you’ve collected to receive the rewards.

Fundraising events and why?

You can take part just for fun and competing but you can also raise money for charities and the six believers is the most we have had run a “Marathon” for us which is very impressive for a small charity like us. We have had many runners in the past and we do require more runners and fundraisers to help fund our work.
