Charity Partners

We encourage all charities to get involved with the Robin Hood Half Marathon and Mini Marathon events. Whether you are a local or national charity, being part of this event will give your charity fantastic exposure whilst encouraging our runners to raise thousands of pounds for your great cause.

Our objective is to transform the amount raised through these events for our Charity partners. There are six levels of Charity partnerships available, designed to suit all Charities, big or small. If you are interested in being an official charity partner please email: info@goldlineevents.co.uk
