Remember you can nominate a charity, voluntary organisation or community interest group of your choice to receive the money you raise in sponsorship. The GMFR will, where possible, add further money to that which you raise off line and pay into the dedicated Great Midlands Fun Run sponsorship account, which means you can gain even greater benefit from your fundraising efforts. If raising sponsor money off-line via the official Great Midlands Fun Run sponsor form, please ensure you follow the paying-in instructions using your personalised Lloyds Bank credit slip included in your event information pack, which you will receive in the post before the rescheduled event on Sunday 20 September.
Great Midlands Fun Run is not responsible for applications lost in the post and proof of posting is not proof of receipt. You enter the Great Midlands Fun Run entirely at your own risk and the organisers will NOT be held responsible for any injuries sustained by you or for any property lost before, during or after the event. By completing, signing and submitting your completed entry form, you confirm that you are medically fit to participate in the 8.5 mile event.
You agree to support and pay all sponsor monies raised by you off-line into the dedicated ‘Great Midlands Fun Run’ sponsorship account only.
On safety grounds, all junior entrants – without exception – must assemble and start from the Junior/Family Assembly Area in South Parade. Any juniors, whose course time indicates they have started from the Adult Assembly Area, WILL have their course time removed from the official times published on the Fun Run web site and in the Royal Sutton Coldfield Observer. Adults who wish to start with juniors may assemble and start with them from South Parade.
