When you join Team Macmillan, you will be supported throughout your event experience. In addition to sending you a training and fundraising pack, we're here to help with any queries you may have and are committed to maximising your enjoyment of your big day.
If you get injured while training we recommend that you contact your GP, physio or specialist sports injury clinic. They will be able to advise you if you are fit enough to run. If you do need to withdraw, please let Macmillan and the race organisers know.
This will depend on which event you are taking part in – some race organisers send these out weeks in advance, while others will let you collect them on the day. We would advise you to visit the race organisers website for further details.
By taking part in your event and raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support you will be making a major difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. In 2009, Team Macmillan runners raised over £3.5 million to provide much-needed cancer services. For more details of how your sponsorship might be spent, please visit our What's it all for| section.
An own place entry is one that you have secured directly through the race organisers. This usually involves paying an entry fee and registering on the event's official website or completing an entry form.
For all of our extreme runs you must secure your own place through the event organiser before joining Team Macmillan.
