Are you an adventurous athlete looking to make a difference on your journey?

Every year our fantastic community of event goers raise thousands of pounds for great causes. In 2021 alone, participants raised over £72,500 off the back of completing Endurancelife events. We’d love to encourage YOU to take on one of our formidable and tough challenges and raise some funds for a cause close to your heart. Our Charity Entry Scheme offers FREE entries to any Endurancelife event for those who pledge and raise a minimum of £400 for their chosen charity.

Let's do this!

1 > Sign up to any Endurancelife event and pay in the normal way.

2 > Start an online fundraising campaign (such as Justgiving) and tell your friends and family about the touch challenge you have ahead of you!

3 > Once you have completed your event, simply login to your Endurancelife account and provide us with your online fundraising link. We will then refund the original entry fee.

Important terms:

You must provide the fundraising proof within 30 days post event, we will then then verify your fundraising total is over £400.

The fundraising page must include a) the specific Endurancelife event title and b) a link to the event webpage and c) your name (raising funds as part of a group or team effort is fine so long as your name is clearly listed on the page). These details must remain on the page ad-infinitum and can not be updated or removed at a later date.

The fundraising amount must total £400 per person, for example: if you have two participants raising money for one event, the total raised must be at least £800.

The total raised must be £400 per event, for example: if you are raising money by undertaking 4 events, the total raised must be at least £1600.

You can not claim a refund if your primary or ultimate goal is not the Endurancelife event itself. For example, if you were raising funds by cycling to India and the Endurancelife event was a stepping stone towards this cycling challenge, then the claim would be rejected.

Fundraising must be directly for a registered charity (UK or overseas), it can not be crowdfunding.

By refunding your entry we reserve the right to list publicly your name, photo, fundraising total, chosen charity and online fundraising page.

We are looking to populate this page fully soon with each and every amazing fundraiser but until then we have plucked out Trevor Lee as a great example of what you can do!

Trevor Lee

Trevor completed the Classic Quarter in 2021. He raised an incredible £6,630.00 for Children's Hospice South West and from Trevor's fundraising page you can read more about this and his self-titled "44 at 60" challenge (44 miles of the Classic Quarter in his 60th year).

Well done Trevor, great job!

Our Charity Entry Scheme enables you to choose to raise funds for ANY charity of your choosing. We have however formed some specific partnerships with the following brilliant charities, all of which carry out vital work. Our Charity Partners have been chosen by us as they will support your fundraising journey throughout and help prepare you for your memorable and tough Endurancelife challenge!

If you are part of a charity and would like to partner with us then please pop us an email in the first instance!
Age UK North, South and West Dorset exists to enable older people to maintain their physical and mental wellbeing in older life. We achieve this by providing direct services to enable older people to remain independent and enjoying life, organising activities to create opportunities for an enriched social life, and by working with older people to campaign and have their voices heard. Whilst we may share the Age UK name, we are in fact a local independent charity, meaning all the funds we raise and the support we give, goes back into the local communities we serve.
At Hearts Together we provide accommodation via our Hospital Hotel. The hotel is for patients, carers and relatives when someone is receiving medical treatment or visiting a loved one at one of our local healthcare centres. We also offer wrap around practical, financial, and emotional support services to help those dealing with complex challenges such as end-of-life care and emergency or life-changing illnesses. Our aim is to take additional burdens away from our guests so that they can focus all of their time and energy on getting better themselves or caring for their loved one or baby in the hospital. Our home-from-home accommodation provides a safe, understanding, and supportive place for individuals and families to stay.
Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own. Parkinson’s is what happens when the brain cells that make dopamine start to die. There are over 40 symptoms, from tremor and pain to anxiety. Some are treatable, but the drugs can have serious side effects. It gets worse over time and there’s no cure. Yet. But we know we’re close to major breakthroughs. Funding the right research into the most promising treatments, we get closer to a cure every day. Until then, we're here for everyone affected by Parkinson’s.
We are Alzheimer’s Society. We're a vital source of support and a powerful force for change for everyone affected by dementia. By 2025, 1 million people will be living with the condition in the UK, and many millions more carers, partners, families and friends are affected. Your support means that people don't have to face this condition alone, and that together, we can build a better tomorrow for everyone affected by dementia. Challenge yourself and raise money to help change the lives of people affected by dementia.

Every year 40,000 children in the UK are left with a brain injury as a result of an accident or illness and it can be devastating – they may no longer be able to walk, talk, stand, sit, or feed themselves. At The Children’s Trust, we aim to help rebuild as many of their skills as possible, as well as their self-esteem. We help children do this through play, exploration, laughter and having fun; things that are often absent when a child has limited mobility or has had a challenging time. By combining music, singing, arts and crafts, day trips and other activities, with therapy, healthcare and education, children do not focus on what they cannot do, they just do it and have fun.

RCHT Charity is the registered charity for Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske), West Cornwall Hospital, Marie Therese House and St Michael’s Hospital. Patients are diagnosed and treated faster, families and loved ones are more comfortable, and staff travel out of county for specialised training - all through generous support given to Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity. Public support moves care at our hospitals beyond the basic provision of the NHS and, together, we can do more for our patients.
Right now, more than 60,000 children in the UK have been diagnosed with a critical condition, changing their lives forever. For them, the joy of childhood is brought to an abrupt end, with treatment, hospital appointments and sleepless nights taking over. The power of a wish revives a childhood stolen by critical illness, bringing light and joy to their lives. But we can’t be that light for everyone. It takes a community of supporters to help these children feel like children again. So, run in aid of Make-A-Wish UK and together, we have the power to light up the darkness.
Go Beyond is the charity giving children and young people facing serious challenges in their lives the chance for a break that lasts a lifetime. On breaks under wide open skies in the countryside, Go Beyond’s expert staff and committed volunteers give children and young people who have been bereaved, abused or bullied, who are living in poverty or caring for loved ones the chance to escape their worries and pressures. To have the moments and experiences they need to believe in themselves and think beyond the day-today for a bigger, brighter future.
PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide is the UK charity dedicated to the prevention of suicide and the promotion of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people.

Almost half of the world's children are vulnerable and living in poverty. We are changing this by making a safe and fulfilling childhood a reality for more of the world's children. We work in three main areas; education, health and well-being, and empowering families to create sustainable livelihoods. Our vision is a world where every child has a happy childhood that sets them up for a positive future.
There are 14.7 million people – that’s more than one in six – in the UK living with a neurological condition.

We are committed to helping people directly out of homelessness and campaigning for the changes needed to solve it altogether.

Bliss is the UK’s leading charity for babies born premature or sick. We champion the right for every baby born premature or sick to receive the best care by supporting families, campaigning for change and supporting professionals, and enabling life-changing research. Bliss was founded in 1979 by a group of concerned parents who discovered that no hospital had all the equipment nor the trained staff it needed to safely care for premature and sick babies. Determined to do something, these volunteers formed a charity to give vulnerable babies the care they deserve. 40+ years later Bliss has grown into the leading UK charity for the 90,000 babies born needing neonatal care every year.
Size of Wales provides funding and expertise to local and indigenous communities in tropical regions to support them to secure and sustain their precious forests, grow more trees and establish sustainable livelihoods. Through education, community engagement and advocacy we also raise awareness in Wales of the importance of tropical forests and trees in tackling climate change. We aim to inspire people to see that they can be part of the solution.

Simply sign up for an event, set up your JustGiving page and a representative from the charity will be in touch.

By far the biggest way we can help fund charitable organisations is via our free event entry scheme (see preceding tabs). In addition to this we have operated a number of effective fundraising campaigns over the years. Three examples are listed below.

"Check-out" with Go Beyond

Since 2019 we have been helping Go Beyond provide free activity breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK. We do this (primarily) by encouraging customers to donate a small amount within our online checkout. To really make this effective we pledge to contribute £0.50 every time someone donates in this way. We are really delighted with the success of this scheme; thank you to everyone who has contributed! The figures listed below are our running totals with this scheme since it started.

Customer donations through check-out: £22,772.00

Corresponding Giftaid: £4,420.50

Endurancelife contribution: £6,628.00

Total: £33,820.50

The Real Relay with Chicks

In 2012 we raised over £10,000 for Go Beyond (formerly Chicks) off the back of our Real Relay event. This was a free to enter relay event which replicated the route of the 2012 Summer Olympics torch relay. More information can be found on the Wikipedia page.

National Trust Neptune Coast Campaign

From 2009 to 2011 we donated £1 per entry across our trail running portfolio. This, alongside voluntary online donations from customers, raised nearly £20,000 for the National Trust.
