How do I enter the public ballot?
You can enter the ballot with the race organisers here. The ballot opens on Tuesday 18 June 2019 and closes at 12pm Tuesday 25 June 2019. Alongside this, Centrepoint places are limited and will be available on a first come first serve basis to buy during and after this time until all are allocated. Buying a place with Centrepoint will guarantee you a place in the event.
I have my own place in this event, how can I join Team Centrepoint?
Congratulations on getting your own place through the ballot – we'd love to have you on our team!
To join us, just complete the own place form. We’ll get in touch to say thank you and send you a fundraising pack.
How can I get a Centrepoint running top to wear on the day?
If you have completed the own place form, we will send you a vest around a month before the event. If you would like one sooner please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I apply for a Centrepoint charity place if I have entered the ballot?
Absolutely. Ballot places are hard to come by so it will only increase your chances of getting on that start line. If we offer you a place and you then find out you were successful in the ballot, we’ll refund your registration fee as long as use your ballot place to run for Centrepoint.

I have an injury and now I can't take part in the event I signed up for. What should I do?
Please contact our Events team as soon as possible on email@example.com to let us know and we’ll discuss your options.
What happens if I don’t reach my fundraising target?
When you buy a Centrepoint charity place in an event, we ask you to reach a minimum fundraising target. The money you raise covers the cost of the event place and administration fees that Centrepoint have to pay for you to take part and helps us deliver the services we provide to homeless young people.
If you're concerned you won’t reach your fundraising target, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. We're on hand to help you out with tips and ideas that will help you reach your target and we may be able to extend your deadline so that you have that little bit longer to fundraise.
I’m stuck for fundraising ideas. Can you help?
