Welcome to week 13 of your training plan
The plan focuses on building your half marathon running specific fitness over 16 weeks so that by the end you are ready for your event. The plan is progressive but you can jump in at a position that matches your current training load if you are already training.
We will be sending out training plans for the next three weeks via email, if at any point you do not receive your email please contact us.
If you are using an online donations page, you can update these with a progress report. If you have set up a Challenge page, you can add a diary entry. Once you have updated your page, you can then re-send the link to your social network and colleagues. Seeing how well your training is going might spur those who have yet to donated, do so this time.
Remember, the Diabetes UK Facebook page where you can chat to other runners
Diabetes facts and stats
Throughout the weeks we will provide you with some statistics and information about diabetes to help your fundraising message have a greater impact
This week: 2% of people with Type 1 diabetes in the UK use life changing pumps. Unfortunately many people are currently unable to access pump therapy.
On the sponsorship forms and on the online donations, your supporters will be asked if they would like to Gift Aid their donation. Please ensure that as many people as possible tick the Gift Aid box plus give their full name and address (postcodes are essential) as it allows us to claim an extra 25p for every pound raised. It doesn’t cost your supporters any extra to Gift Aid their donation.
