Team registrations for the 2017 race open in May 2017.
The provisional date for the 2017 race is Sunday 17th September.
The cost per team entry is £135 and this registration fee is set at a level which covers the substantial costs of running the event on the day. We work hard to keep these costs to a minimum and any surplus is donated to the official charity. By far the largest part of the money raised for the charity comes from the sponsorship money raised by the teams that enter.
Chariots of Fire has always been run on the basis that we support a nominated official charity, which in 2016 was Papworth Hospital Charity. While all charity fundraising has its value, the focus of the event is the nominated charity. As such, we reserve the right to limit other, non-official, charity team entries to one team, and that charity team is expected to raise money for the official Chariots of Fire charity. In 2016, Papworth Hospital Charity has asked each team entering Chariots of Fire to raise £300 in sponsorship money.
Please encourage each team member to raise as much sponsorship money possible for the official beneficial charity. There is a prize awarded to the team that raises the highest sponsorship.
If a team enters the event and later decides to withdraw from Chariots of Fire, there will be no refund and the registration money will go direct to the charity.
The trustees of Hewitsons Charitable Trust reserve the right to make any amendments to any team names that are deemed inappropriate or exclude any team that is knowingly participating and promoting the raising of funds on behalf of another charity.
