How can I run?
You can clock up the miles however it suits you. Whether you’re keeping up your normal exercise routine or trying something new, you can make up your 50 miles one mile at a time or in two marathons throughout the month. Pound the pavements, use a treadmill or go cross country - the choice is yours.
Who can take part?
Anyone and everyone. Run the way you want over the course of the month.
Is this challenge for me?
You should be physically fit enough to complete the distance but if you have any health concerns, please speak to your doctor before taking part. Taking part in the challenge is at your own risk, so please make sure to take due care and follow any government guidelines at the time of your challenge.
Can we take part as a team?
Yes, one team, one dream! All you need to do is select the team option on sign up and it will guide you through the process of creating a team or joining an existing one.
What’s the best way to track my movement?
This challenge is all about keeping busy and active, so we trust you to be sticking to the distance you challenged yourself to. JustGiving has a great tool to connect your fundraising page to your Strava account so you can share your runs publicly.
How can I fundraise?
Once you’ve decided to Run the Month, there’s loads of great ways to fundraise. Sign up and we’ll help you set up a JustGiving page and send you tips to make your challenge a success.
How much does it cost?
It’s free to sign up and take part. As for fundraising, we're suggesting that you raise a minimum of £100 - but we'd like you to aim higher.
I want to wear a Prostate Cancer UK top whilst I run, where can I get one?
We have an amazing gift of a branded running top if you hit the £200 fundraising mark. Or you can kit yourself out at our online shop.
How can I see what other people are doing?
We’ll be posting regular running inspiration to help give you that boost throughout your challenge, and so will your fellow challengers. Check out the story grid on our homepage where you can see what your fellow runners are up to and how they are racking up the miles. You will also be able to keep your eye on those hitting 50 miles on the leaderboard to encourage you. Don’t forget to post your #RuntheMonth snaps too - we can’t wait to see those run prep grids.
How can I connect my Strava account to my JustGiving page?
If you want your miles to automatically show on your JustGiving page, you can connect your Strava account to your page. There’s full instructions here.
Why should I self-donate?
Fundraisers who donate to their own page raise on average 42% more! Dipping into your own wallet and donating to your own page isn’t cheating, and it’s the best way to reach your fundraising target. Your friends and family will soon follow suit...
