October may seem a long way off, but it pays to plan well in advance.
There are many reasons to start making plans immediately, even if you don’t plan to stage the event until 12 October 2014:
- Bookings: venues will get booked up quickly, so you need to sort this out pronto.
- Planning: participating charities will need to ensure they have enough volunteers available on the day.
- Advertising: you want to market the event far and wide, well in advance to get as many people as possible to register.
- Training: competitors will need time to train for the event and get reasonably fit.
