Essential information to get your fundraising campaign started as part of On The Move - act now

What are the benefits of being a Mover?

It’s all about the team

We’d like to give you a really warm welcome to the On The Move team. We have over 100 runners taking part in this incredible challenge. Our target is to raise £50,000 split between two causes that are very close to our heart – and we fully intend to smash it!
Being part of the team is reward enough in itself of course, but we’ve also worked hard to secure a few little extras to help get your training off to a good start.

Technical T-Shirt

Each Mover will receive a technical tshirt, which they can use whilst pounding the streets training and on race day itself.

If you haven’t received yours yet, drop us a message so we can get you looking tip-top.

Lifestyle Assessments

The generous folks at Milton Keynes College are offering lifestyle assessments to any Movers to ensure that we’re all fighting fit!

We strongly recommend you take up the offer – it’s useful to get a general picture of your overall health – not just for your involvement in the marathon, but for day to day life as well.

Gait Testing + Pro Advice

Some wonderful staff from the local, Milton Keynes branch of Up and Running – a pro running store, will be visiting our Milton Keynes office to offer Gait Testing for all Movers.

They’re also hosting a talk on nutrition advice and training, as well as a group lunchtime run with their Personal Trainers so you can get some expert advice.

15% Off at Up & Running

Up & Running have also been super-generous by offering all Movers a whopping 15% discount for all products purchased in the Milton Keynes store.

So, if you’re thinking of investing in a new pair of running trainers (and you really should be looking after your feet during your training) or anything else from their wide range of products, then this will help keep the pressure off your wallet.

Okay! What’s next?

Taken advantage of these fantastic Mover-only benefits? Well done! You’re really warming up.
