100ks of Summer
About this event
Over the 100 days of Summer, step out for Claire House and run, walk, jog or ramble 100 kilometers for your local children’s hospice. From 1k a day to 2 and a half marathons, we challenge you to cover this distance your way!
How does it work?
Registration is completely free!
We ask each 100ks of Summer challenger to run or walk 100k during 26th May – 2nd September and raise a minimum of £100 for Claire House.
Once you’re signed up, we’ll send your 100ks of Summer pack in the post; this will include a Distance Tracker form to record your progression on, a Sponsorship Form and a Claire House top for you to wear during your challenge!
After you’ve completed your challenge and have raised your sponsorship, you’ve got until 30th September to post/email in your Distance Tracker (or other evidence of your 100ks) and your sponsorship funds (minimum sponsorship £100 per person for a medal). We’ll then post you out your awesome 100ks of Summer medal!
How can I reach my 100k?
You can do this however you’d like between 26th May and 2nd September. A few ways you could reach your target:
Walk 1k a day!
Run or walk 5k x 20 times
Run or walk 10k x 10 times
Build up your distances throughout the Summer; e.g. 2k x 10, 5k x 10, 10k x 3 = 100k!
If you’re ready for it, take on a few bigger distances and tally them up! Whether you’re walking or running, they all count towards your 100k target.
How do I keep track of my distance?
In your pack we’ll send you a ‘Distance Tracker’ form so you can write down each time you work towards your 100k target. There’s lots of iPhone/Android Apps or watch technology you can use now to see exactly how far you walk/run when you step out, or you can use an online map to see how far your route was.
How do I fundraise?
Your pack will include lots of ideas to help you fundraise, but our top two ways are:
Use the Sponsorship Form we send you and ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.
Set up a JustGiving Page and fundraise online (we’ll include information about this in your pack!)
