b. Own Entry
Any type of entry (e.g. standard/late) which you pay for yourself. Runners who have purchased their Own Entry are welcome, but not obliged, to fundraise for any charity of their choice.
If you do wish to fundraise for an Affiliate Charity, you can let them know via the ‘tell a charity I have my own entry’ link in your My Details account. If the charity is not an Affiliate Charity, you are welcome to run for them, however you would need to contact them directly yourself.
You must enter online at www.mens10k.com yourself. This is because you must agree to the event terms and conditions and disclaimer, which only you can do. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you have an approved entry in your chosen event.
Your chosen Affiliate Charity has paid for your Charity Entry and will require a minimum amount in sponsorship money to ensure that their involvement in the event results in funds being raised for the charity. Please think very carefully before securing a Charity Entry as any change of heart on your part, whether that be regarding your choice of charity, your ability to raise the minimum sponsorship required, or taking part in the event at all, can have a very negative impact on the charity.
This would be treated as two entirely separate entries. For example, If you have an approved Charity Entry in the Glasgow event and wish to change to the Edinburgh event, you would need to ask your charity to withdraw your entry in the Glasgow event and you would then need to enter the Edinburgh event from scratch, providing entries are still open.
Your charity will incur a fee for the withdrawal of your original entry, and is not obliged to guarantee your new entry, so please do think carefully before initially choosing your location and discuss any proposed changes with your charity as soon as possible.
This would be treated as two entirely separate entries. The withdrawal of your Charity Entry and the other runner’s entry are not at all related. You would need to ask your charity to withdraw your entry and the other runner would need to begin the entry process from scratch, providing entries are still open. If entries are closed, it will not be possible for the second runner to participate. Your charity will incur a fee for the withdrawal of your Charity Entry, so please do think carefully before entering.
