The Fundraising Army

The Manchester Half Marathon is a fundraising army event.

The Soldiers’ Charity Fundraising Army is growing from strength to strength with more fundraisers than ever taking up the challenge and rising through the ranks!

As a recruit in this elite fundraising force, your primary mission is to raise vital funds to support soldiers, veterans and their immediate families. Experience the camaraderie of the London Marathon, the adventure of the Frontline Walk or test your mental ability in Operation Bletchley.

Do you have the drive to rise through the ranks whilst raising money to help those who fought and gave so much for us?

All recruits in our flagship events start off as a Private and are promoted when fundraising milestones have been achieved.

How far will you rise? Outrank your mates!
