Cold Brew Event's crowdfunder has been launched to help us bring new and exciting events for 2021!

New stretch target

We did it! We hit our target and have been match funded by the North East Local Enterprise Partnership (NELEP)! Thank you to all of our pledgers.

Our final "Stretch Target" (including the £5,000 match funding) is for £15,000. If we do hit this target, we'll be able to purchase additional equipment that we normally rely on to be provided by 3rd parties. Owning this equipment also helps reduce the costs of running our events.


We organise sports events across the whole of the northeast region. From family trail running events through to one of the UK’s most gruelling ultra runs, our events offer challenges for all ages and abilities that create meaningful connections and partnerships, bringing a positive impact on the community.

Sadly with the outbreak of Covid-19, we've had to postpone our events until 2021. Not only having to contend with the financial impact of having no events this year, but the knock-on effects and strict measures on personal contact have also created so much uncertainty, we are unable to promote future events until we are confident they can go ahead. This has affected our income that we'd normally receive ahead of events. With this loss of vital revenue, it has prevented us from working on some exciting new projects that we hoped to launch in 2021.


How can you help?
Crowdfunder is offering up their platform to us to pre-sell vouchers for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date. By doing so, this allows us to gain some much-needed match funding too! This income will also allow us to continue to work towards the new events that we wish to bring you in 2021. With your help, along with Crowdfunder, we'll come back bigger and stronger!

How does it work?
Any contribution that you make, we'll provide you with a voucher code that can be used to enter any of the events that we organise. The rewards offer great discounts on the entry fees with savings of between £5 & £20. There's also a reward on offer that is guaranteed entry to the Montane Cheviot Goat 2021, so if you're looking to enter this event, this is a great way to secure your place!


This project offers rewards in return for your donation.
