How do I register?
It couldn’t be easier to join us! You can register here.
Is there a registration fee?
There’s no registration fee! We just ask you to raise what you can.
How do I take part?
You can take on The Big 100 where you want, when you want. Whether you want to take it slow and steady with some weekday wanders, or hit your 100km target in one weekend hike, it’s totally up to you.
Can I start before or after the 1st September?
The distance trackers will start from the 1st September, so only walks from that date will be counted. You can start fundraising straight away though! The earlier you start, the sooner you can earn yourself a water bottle and medal.
What do I get for doing The Big 100?
We’ll send a limited edition water bottle to everyone who raises over £100! If you really go the distance and raise £200 you’ll receive a bespoke medal to wear with pride.
Can I meet others taking part?
We would love you to join our online community here. You can share tips, fundraising advice and plenty of photos!
What is ‘The Double’?
Is this event Covid secure?
Absolutely. You can do The Big 100 safely in an environment that's most comfortable for you. This is a challenge just for you, so no need to mix with others while you walk!
Is there a minimum amount to be raised?
There’s no target! We just ask that you raise as much as possible to help us fight lung disease. Once you raise £100 we will send you a limited edition water bottle, so you can stay branded and hydrated on your walks! By raising £100, you could fund a day of life saving research.
£200 will earn you a bespoke medal! For going above and beyond with your fundraising you deserve to have something you can wear with pride.
How do I send in money donated on to my page?
Money donated to your JustGiving fundraising page will come to the charity automatically.
Do I have to fundraise online?
It’s definitely the easier way to fundraise, but if you receive any money offline, you can make a donation to your page for that amount with a credit card. Remember, if you’re paying money in to your own page you can’t claim Gift Aid.
Where is my money going?
If you choose to fundraise for Asthma UK, your fundraising will go towards stopping asthma attacks and, ultimately, curing asthma. We fund world-leading research, campaign for change and support people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life-threatening asthma attack. If you need advice, call the Asthma UK helpline on 0300 222 5800 or WhatsApp our nurses on 07378 606728.
If you choose to fundraise for the British Lung Foundation, you’ll allow our researchers to find new treatments and cures. You’ll enable us to campaign for better policies on lung health. And you’ll help people to get lifesaving advice from our support services. Our work is vital. If you need advice, you can call the British Lung Foundation helpline on 03000 030 555.
Technical support and tracking your distance
What fitness tracker can I use?
Your fundraising is powered by JustGiving, and your fundraising page will have an integration with Strava. Therefore, if you have and use Strava, you can link your fitness app to your fundraising page to get a running (or walking!) total. Alternatively, if you don't use Strava, you can log your distance manually on your fundraising page to show your supporters how far you've covered. Take a look at the video below.
Can I take on the challenge at home?
Definitely, walk wherever you feel most comfortable. You could do laps of your garden or take part on a treadmill.
I don’t have a fitness tracker; can I still take part?
Yes! You can add your steps manually. Just log into your JustGiving account, go to your fundraising page and click the 'log fitness' button you'll see there on the page. Take a look at the video below.
How do I get help with my profile page?
If you're experiencing difficulties with your JustGiving fundraising page, email firstname.lastname@example.org and the JustGiving support team will be in touch to help you. Alternatively, you can live chat with the support team from within your JustGiving account.
For anything else, or if your query is unrelated to your JustGiving fundraising page, send an email to email@example.com and one of the events team will be in touch as soon as possible.
