How to set up your fundraising page

Race the Thames 2024 is scheduled to take place between the 26th January to the 2nd February 2024. Join us to Bust the Winter Blues and support your chosen charity. The best reasons to get involved are:

  • Team building - bring your teams together from across the country or the world. it's amazing to hear the stories of the impact we've had over the last 4 years of running the event.
  • Getting active - the event is great for those who are motivated and active to inspire those who are less active and build teams to make a positive impact for those who are hard to reach.
  • Health and Wellbeing - Busting the winter blues is the ultimate goal. We see a massive impact when team captains encourage and sometimes cajole those who are struggling with the winter months to get active and into a positive social group no matter where they are.

This will be our 4th Race the Thames Virtual, with over 300 teams that have entered over the years, fundraising over £300,000 for over 60 amazing causes to date,
