I want to run for a charity but does that mean I need to run in fancy dress?

No it doesn’t – and this seems to be one of the biggest misconceptions about charity running. Some charity runners choose to run in costume but this is not the majority at all. Depending on the charity you chose to run for, it’s likely they will supply you with a charity running top to wear on the day.

There’s generally the opportunity to get your name added to your top too – it’s a great motivator to hear your name being called on race day. But as my fellow experts will suggest – make sure you practice wearing your race day gear before race day on some of your training runs so you know you’ll be comfy.
