– All participants will receive a bespoke StarRun medal

– Chip timing

– Fully marked & marshalled routes

What’s different about our event? We are covering the costs of running this event so there is no ‘entry fee’. Instead, we are asking participants to make a voluntary ‘Entry Donation’ – 100% of which will go directly to Young Epilepsy. The suggested minimum voluntary entry donation per entrant are:

10km: £20 (£15 for students or OAP’s)

5km: £15 (£10 for students or OAP’s)

Fun Run Walk or Push: £5

On The Day Entries: In line with other similar events we suggest an additional £5 donation for entries on the day

On the Entry Page select the number of entries you want then select ‘proceed’ to move to the following page where you input your details and your ‘Entry donation’. We recommend using JustGiving if you want to raise additional sponsorship.

What is Young Epilepsy and what difference could my donation make?Young Epilepsy (www.youngepilepsy.org.uk) provide world-class specialist services at our St Piers School and College in Lingfield Surrey, attended by children and young people from across the UK. Nationally, we campaign and influence policy; run outreach services offering emotional and social support, particularly around transition times; and deliver pioneering clinical and social research, resulting in life-changing improvements for young people living with epilepsy.

£10 could fund our helpline for an hour, giving families and young people vital support when they need it the most.

£50 could make a life-changing difference for future generations of young people with epilepsy, by helping us to continue our essential medical research.

£100 could give a young person struggling to cope with their diagnosis ongoing 1-2-1 support from one of our specialist caseworkers.

Young Epilepsy is the operating name of The National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy (NCYPE). Registered Charity number 311877 (England and Wales).

Who are Wingate and why are we organising and paying for this event?

We want to create a fun and inclusive annual event which raises funds for their great work and raises their profile locally. We will deliver an excellent event for you so please donate generously.
