Event date: Sunday 19th June 2022
Minimum pledge: We ask you to set a target of £250 but there is no minimum pledge! Have fun, get fundraising and help raise money and awareness for those lives affected by eating disorders!
Those who sign up for local running events often do so for a whole number of reasons. There are those who come to compete, hoping to win the race or beat a personal best, and there are those who join with friends, hoping to make it to the end with lots of laughs along the way. Whatever the reason, simply showing up to events like the Ramathon can really make a difference and truly put the FUN in fundraising.
The Ramathon is Derby’s favourite charity road run, and one of the oldest and biggest events of its kind in Derbyshire. It’s a half-marathon, and an event that raises thousands for local good causes. We hope that 2022 will be another success, with lots of First Steps ED fundraisers crossing that finish line.
If you’ve run before, this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever, with a route for you to truly enjoy the city-scapes and stunning scenery of our favourite city. There truly is so much to love about this race, with its fast and flat course and large crowds which will motivate you and excite you the whole way round!
If ‘fast and flat’ isn’t for you, don’t worry! You don’t need to be a serious runner to take part in the fun and fundraising. And if a half-marathon sounds a bit steep for your first venture, check out the Derby 5km event which runs alongside where runners can still run, walk, skip or jump around the course.
This year we are so excited to be a partner charity of the event and hope to find a team of runners, fundraisers and volunteers to help make this an event to remember in the First Steps ED calendar.
Run for us.
You can apply for one of our charity places simply by emailing the team at email@example.com. Someone from our team will get in touch with you with your exclusive charity pin and put you in touch with our fabulous fundraising manager (that’s me!) PLUS! By choosing to run for First Steps ED and signing up with a charity pin, you won’t have to pay the RunForAll registration fee, bonus!
If you have personal experience of an eating disorder or current health issues, you should consider any health and recovery implications taking part in the Ramathon or Derby 5 Mile this year. If you’re unsure, talk to your GP or loved one and discuss whether this is the right time to take on this challenge.
Apply for a place today with Team FSED and be part of our campaign to raise awareness for early intervention and better treatment for those struggling with eating disorders and difficulties. Help us provide hope, opportunity and choices to those in recovery.
Volunteer on the day.
Don’t fancy running but what to be a part of Team FSED at this year’s Ramathon?!
You can be a part of our fun and friendly team and help this year’s runners have a fantastic experience whilst they run and fundraising for us (and lots of other amazing causes.)
We can’t do it without our volunteers and raise vital funds for the charity. Whether you are one of the route marshals cheering on the runners, or manning the drink stand ready to refuel our fundraisers, you’re a part of one of our favourite fundraisers of the year, and making an impact to those affected by eating disorders.
To learn more about how to volunteer and what you might be doing, contact the team today on firstname.lastname@example.org (and why not get your friends involved for a fun day out in Derby!
