Here are six good reasons to run for a charity:

  1. Make A Difference

Anything you raise will go directly to the charities and will help to make all their good work possible, changing lives in the process.

  1. Extra Motivation

If you ever find yourself ‘hitting the wall’ during training or the race itself, running for a good cause provides the ultimate incentive to keep on going.

  1. Increase Awareness

The Schneider Electric Marathon de Paris, provides the ideal platform for you to increase charity awareness on a global scale.

  1. Race Day Support

If times get tough, not only will you have the unwavering encouragement from your charity cheerleaders, but there will also be huge numbers of spectators cheering for the charity ‘superheroes’!

  1. Self-Satisfaction

You’ll be surrounded by fellow charity runners, all of whom would have completed the race for the same purpose, so the sense of teamwork and accomplishment will be in the air.

  1. Guaranteed Entry

The event sell out notoriously fast and many hopeful runners miss out on getting a place. If you run the event for charity, however, you’re guaranteed your place which means you avoid the entry rush, safe in the knowledge that you’re already in!
