Who are we?

We are the GB&NI 50k team. A team of dedicated ultramarathon runners and supporters aiming for success at the World Champs

Why are we crowdfunding?

The team is part-funded by UK Athletics and we need to raise the balance of the budget through self-funding, sponsorship, personal donations and crowd-funding. If you would like to support the team to achieve their potential, please donate.

How we’ll spend the money raised

Contributions will go towards flights and accommodation for athletes and the support team for the 2023 Championships. Anything additional will be rolled over to be used for a future championship.

How you can play your part

There are four simple ways to help us reach our target and make this project a reality.

1. Make a donation. Don’t delay if you’re going to support us because momentum is key to our success! All donors will be entered into a draw for prizes donated by the team including a framed, limited edition original autographed and framed print of 'The Moment' from the 1954 Bannister and Landy 'Miracle Mile'.


Other prizes include a year's membership to the SCY programme (SCY for runners - Carla Molinaro) and a SOAR Running Race System - Pairing the SOAR Race Vest – featherweight at just 44g in a size M, and constructed from a game-changing Italian 3D mesh fabric – with a pair of racing shorts of your choice. Select from the Marathon Shorts, or Marathon Speed Shorts for fully-integrated gel storage capacity. Or, the Race Shorts or Speed shorts for stripped-back, lightweight and laser-cut performance.

In addition, to thank donors who wish to contribute a larger sum, the team is offering the following exclusive rewards.

£50 - Invitation to a webinar on the Hyderabad experience

£100 - A personalised three month training plan for your own target event

£500 - Training session with one of the athletes, pacing or crewing for your own ultra (if local to the athlete)*.

£1000 - motivational talk from an athlete, and a member of team management, for your business

2. Spread the word. Share our project on your social media pages and tell the world to get behind us! The more people we reach, the more support we will get.

3. Offer rewards. Get involved if you are a local business by donating things we can offer to our supporters. We will give you a shout out!
