How much money do I have to raise for Ambitious about Autism and how much is it to enter?
Entry costs £150 and we ask each rider to raise £750 for the charity, or you can pay £750 up front to enter without fundraising. Team entry to the relay event costs £200 and we ask you to raise £2000 collectively.
Does the registration fee go towards the sponsorship target?
No, the registration only contributes towards the running costs of the event so your fundraising really counts towards helping Ambitious about Autism. Every penny you raise goes direct to their charitable work.
When do I need to have hit my fundraising target by?
Fundraising is a mandatory part of the event. Individual participants must have raised £500 and teams must have raised £1500 by the 1st July 2019 to be able to take part in London to Manchester 2019. You can continue fundraising until November 1st if you wish to raise more to hit or exceed your target.
Will there be a bag drop at the start or access to luggage during the ride?
You will leave your main luggage with us at the start of the ride, which will be transported straight to the finish. You can also give us a smaller ‘wet bag’ with spare kit and other items to be waiting for you at the third feed stop.
Where does North start?
North starts from Birmingham up. If you live or hail from Birmingham or the Midlands, you must pick an allegiance.
How should I train for this ride?
We will be providing training tips to all participants in the run-up to the ride. Our Clubhouses will also become hubs for advice and inside knowledge of the route.
How will I hit my target?
There are lots of ways to raise money and some great suggestions will be shared with participants in the run-up to the event. Ambitious about Autism can also support you and give you one-to-one advice to increase your chances of reaching the target.
What if I can’t complete the ride? Will there be a broom wagon?
No rider will be left on the road. There will be roadside support to help with any mechanicals and a broom wagon to pick up any riders not able to complete the whole route.
