Do I have to fundraise for Cancer Research UK or can I fundraise for a different charity?
If you’re signed up to our London Winter Run, your profile will be automatically connected to Cancer Research UK, therefore you will not be allowed to use this platform to fundraise for another charity. Find out why you should fundraise for Cancer Research UK HERE.
How do I unlock virtual badges? Do I have to use Strava to track my training?
We have partnered with Strava specifically for this challenge therefore all other tracking apps will not count towards your training, and you will not be able to unlock virtual badges if you do not have a Strava profile. If you connect your Strava account, all training runs will be automatically uploaded to your profile. Please note that your Strava activity may take up to a day to appear on your profile.
