Double or Quit

Date : 26th August 2017 5pm Start

Race Charity

We have two reasons for running the Double or Quit race - 1 to have fun and 2 to raise some money for charity. We raise money by running the event as a not for profit event. We take all the entry fees - take off the expenses for things like - goody bags, advertising, course booking, first aid and ARC Licenses and whats left goes to charity. Please find details below of the fundraising we have done over the past few years.

2016 nominated charity - Ryan Lee Trust

Ryan Lee Trust



We are delighted to announce that we raised £2448.41 for The Ryan Lee Trust from our 2016 race.

In August 2009, 14 year old son Ryan was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Tumours, five in total with the main tumour being on his brain stem. Having struggled to obtain some useful and essential aids that would have enhanced Ryan's care the charity was set up to make sure people could get the things that they need during the difficult times.

We are delighted to announce that in 2015 the profits from our Double or Quit race will be donated to Ben's Den.

Ben’s Den is a dedicated children’s charity based in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, and set up in memory of Ben Parker, who sadly passed away in 2003 following a battle with leukaemia.

The aim of the charity is to support the families of children fighting leukaemia or cancer, by gifting them a free holiday and allowing them to spend much needed, quality family time together away from the overwhelming hospital environment
