PSC Support has a Silver Bond entitling us to buy one charity place in the London Marathon every 5 years (yes, they are pretty hard to get hold of, especially for small charities like ours!).
Great Run events
PSC Support enters the charity ballot each year for places in the Great Run events, such as the Great North Run and the Great South Run. There is a high demand for places but we are usually lucky and get some places each year.
Anyone can apply for a place in an organised run and choose to raise money for a charity. If you have plans to do this for PSC Support, don’t forget to let us know so we can support you with your fundraising.
Getting places in events: we strongly encourage you to enter public ballots to get your own place in these events and let us know if you are lucky enough to get one. We would love you to fundraise for us and join #TeamPSCSupport.
Congratulations on getting a place and thank you for thinking of PSC Support! We would love for you to join #TeamPSCSupport and fundraise for our charity.
In most organised challenge events, you can choose to run for and support PSC Support as an Own Place runner. There is no minimum fundraising pledge for own place runners; you can raise as much as you can.
Get started by clicking on the link below to let us know you'd like to join #TeamPSCSupport.
When you get a PSC Support charity place in an event such as a half marathon or a 10k, or you have your own place in one and pledge to fundraise for PSC Support, we'll send you a free PSC Support running top to wear with pride. We send the top to you about 4-6 weeks before your event or race and your fundraising is well under way. Make sure you let us know you have a place.
We'll also send you a PSC Support pin badge. These are not for sale and cannot be bought.
You can also buy running tops and other PSC Support gear on eBay:
Set up a JustGiving page to collect your sponsor ship money and donations and it will automatically transfer to PSC Support. If you receive offline donations, you can pay them into PSC Support by post or via the JustGiving donate button.
Be sure to let us know so we know who it is from. You can also make a note on your Just Giving page so the total amount raised including your offline donations is displayed on the page.
We are always extremely grateful to our fundraisers and aim to show our appreciation in any way we can. However, PSC Support is run by a very small team of volunteers so it is not always possible to attend events in person.
