1) Think about your personal message
Why are you running the marathon?
Why are you running the marathon for your charity?
How much effort are you putting in?
How long is 26.2 miles?
Or, if you’re feeling skint…
…Print your page address on A4 paper and cut out slips!
8) Get your page featured in the local press
• Use our press release template: www.justgiving.com/tips
• Include your page address
• Add interesting facts – tell your story!
- Where are you from?
- What do you do?
- Is it your first marathon?
- Why are you running?
- Who are you running for?
9) Send fun reminder emails
• Say even a small donation helps
• Include a photo or video
• Make them laugh with training stories
• Tell them what you’re looking forward to
• …and what you’re not!
Keep fundraising after the marathon! Your page stays open for 3 months
and 20% of donations come in after people finish their event!
10) Manners cost nothing*… so say thank you
*as my Mum says
And anyway else you can…
Just by email…
(or by snail mail!)
