  1. Sponsorship Scheme

We understand how difficult getting sponsorship can be sometimes, especially if you have completed this or something similar before. So since 2021, we will have our “sponsorship scheme”. When you can do:

(a) 1-2 events for children to participate in, probably a walk, run or cycle, as children seem to get sponsorship easier than adults!!

(b) We suggest if you attend a coach led run or training session, to donate £1- £2 to go towards your sponsorship.

(c) We will try to organise a different event that you can participate in free of charge.


  1. Official Rights

i Running High shall organise and stage the Race in accordance with clause 20.

  1. Time Is Precious, purchase a quantity of places via Running High. These places are at a lower cost than the public entries, however, we do lower the rate even further, as an incentive to join us.

iii. Running High, provide and maintain a designated on-line registration system (“the Portal”) to allow Race Charities to register for their allocated Race Entries on our entrants behalf.

  1. Running High shall be responsible for ensuring the security of the Portal and shall ensure all personal and other information contained on the Portal is appropriately protected from cyber threats in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Legislation.
  2. Running High & TIP, adhere to GDPR.
  3. TIP will be taking photographs & sharing on social media, sometimes media & on our website. Running High “may” also do the same.


  1. Payment Process
  2. Time Is Precious, will allow 10 days (unless otherwise agreed) for the entrant to pay for their place. During this time places will be secure.
  3. After this time if the entrant has not contacted TIP, we will make contact again & the place can not be guaranteed.

iii. Once payment has been paid, TIP will contact you to confirm your place. Payment can be sent either via BACS, cash or cheque. (Address & bank details will be given upon request of the place.

iii. Unfortunately, we are unable to give refunds, if you are unable to run. However, if significant time is given, we can roll the place over to the following year, at a very small admin charge.


  1. Sponsorship Pledge & Initial Donation
  2. We know how difficult it can be to get sponsorship. This is why we ask for a minimal amount, compared to other charities.
  3. We ask that you raise at least the minimal amount, this also covers our cost for running tops, refreshments, the marquee and all we provide. Therefore, the more you raise, the more you can help sick & disabled children at home & in hospital.

iii. Some charities ask for a pre-payment of sponsorship, as you will be surprised the amount of people that have the free training, running top, refreshments etc & donate nothing or very little, which leaves us in a minus situation, which in return takes away supporting sick & disabled children. We do not ask for this at present, as we like to trust our runners, so please do not put us in the predicament of having to do this.

  1. We ask that every person sets up a Justgiving page. This is the easiest way to gain sponsorship & the funds go automatically into TIP bank account, so hassle free. We also send out sponsorship forms & welcome packs in approx November, please keep these safe.



  1. Substitution/ Transfer of Cancelled Charity Entrants
  2. Time Is Precious, has the right to cancel places if a runner does not comply to the terms & conditions. (This has never been done before).
  3. Cancellation of places can be rolled over to the following year “if” enough notice is given for a small admin fee.
  4. Cancelled runners may still receive their race packs if notification of cancellation is received after a runner’s details have been sent to Running High’s mailing house for processing. Cancelled runners will be asked to return their race number to Running High, and their race number will be voided.

iii. Registered race entries are personal to the entrant and cannot be transferred between runners, if this does happen, we will have to cancel the place & it becomes void. If caught, you maybe penalised by Running High.
