We have teamed up with realbuzz to provide you with a range of helpful tips and advice regarding training, nutrition and diet. Realbuzz.com is a purpose-built website, with a range of quality communication tools, such as blogs, forums and a route planner and gives its users all the motivation they need to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
Some of our runners have also found useful advice on the runnersmedicalresource.com web site.

We have a limited number of guaranteed places in the event below. To apply and secure a CCLG guaranteed Charity place please email us.

Runbritain.com is the most comprehensive events calendar in the UK with all UKA licensed events listed. It includes previews and profiles of events that capture the imagination and encourage you to give it a go plus interviews and blogs by runners who have aimed high and battled against the odds.
They also provide free training programmes for distances of 5km to marathon;advice on preventing injury and what to do if injury does occur. You can enter events online direct from their web site and select CCLG as the charity you wish to run for. Runbritain do not charge you or your event for this service.
Further selection of runs/half and full marathons/triathlons
If none of the above are quite what you are looking for, or wish to find an event nearer to home access the Run Britain website. Its events diary provides information on 5k, 10k runs, half and full marathons and triathlons across the country as well as a wealth of information on training.
We always advise our runners to set up a page on Virgin Money Giving as this makes it easier for them to collect sponsorship money, and as Virgin claim the Gift Aid for us, it saves us a job too. However we also have sponsorship forms available should you prefer this method.
You can see our our current Virgin Money Giving fundraisers by visiting our Virgin Money Giving page.
Remember that as CCLG is a Registered Charity (No.286669) all donations by sponsors who are UK taxpayers can be Gift Aided. This means that at no cost to the donor, CCLG receives an additional 25% from HMRC.
