RUN RAISERS – Run a Race, Charity @ Your Pace!
We assume that you – like us – consider running being the energy for the soul! And that the everyday training sessions are spiced up & become more inspiring if you have a goal (= a race) you have registered for!
Therefore we have created this service – THE ULTIMATE CHARITY RUNNING CALENDAR – where “all” (well…) running races – regardless of distance, type of race, date & location – are gathered in one place for you to search for & find your next running challenge!
- You might wanna try a new race distance
- You might wanna try a new type of race
- You might wanna see if there is a race in the city of your business trip
- You might wanna do a weekend trip somewhere a specific date
Note! All races available have organizers who sponsor Run Raisers with X number of free start bibs, which we can sell to discounted prices for charity; we call these “Raise Bibs“. The Search Tool / Calendar will be updated weekly as we start cooperations with new race organizers to sponsor with free bibs!
In addition we also have a strong belief in the power of human good will to also contribute to charity by running for good causes. Thus, our core business is CHARITY in combination with RUNNING – hence the name Run Raisers – and ALL products/services offered here on www.runraisers.com contribute to charity!
That is in most cases, charity on your terms = YOU choose for what purpose & what organization you wish to support through your running, among the list of charity organizations Run Raisers cooperate with! In the checkout you will decide (in many cases) which charity organization will receive your contribution & after completed purchase you will receive a separate email with the link to the selected race website + a unique code giving you free race registration. YOU will get a start bib to a lower price – YOU will contribute to charity – THE RACE gets more visibility & participants = WIN WIN WIN!
At any given time on this website (start page), you will see how much money has been raised to charity through Run Raisers. And 4 times per year, Run Raisers will donate the accumulated amount that each charity organization has been awarded by our customers.
Running unites, which is why we want to inspire more & more people discover the beauty of running, both for him/herself & for others, but also together to make new contacts & hopefully to find new friends!
RUN RAISERS (Improfiler AB, org.nr 556899-6036, VAT SE556899603601) was founded in Sweden 2016 by running enthusiast Mikael Hasselrot, aka Run Dude. Mikael really took up running in 2009 & instantly became passionate about this fantastic activity. Since then he has annually participated in numerous running challenges in Sweden as well as around the world, including Marathons, Ultra Marathons, Half Marathons, 10km, Relays & OCR´s.
Note! Run Raisers is a race intermediary, thus has no responsibility regarding registrations etc.. The only exception is our own race – KRKA Ultra Challenge www.KrkaUltra.com.
We will approach & cooperate with multiple race organizers in the Nordics, Europe, as well as a wider geography. Our objective is to give you – as our customer – the chance to get a Start Bib for Free (= Raise Bib) just by contributing to charity. The race organizers give us free starting bibs in exchange for an opportunity to be promoted with extended info at www.runraisers.com.
We are constantly looking for additional opportunities with race organizers in order to add more races for charity – please contact us if you too want to contribute!
All these races will have a RR-symbol next to it in your search results. All you have to do is 1) Add a race with the RR-symbol to your cart, 2) Pay the stated amount (of which 50% goes to charity), 3) Choose your preferred charity organization/purpose, 4) Get a unique code to use for free race registration at the race organizer website.
Run Raisers has the rights to represent Stotinka (www.stotinka.hr/eng) in the Nordics. Stotinka is the biggest race timing provider in Croatia (running, swimming, biking) with a market share of >45%, but is also operating in Serbia, Italy & Belgium.
Only in 2018 Stotinka timed >235 races & manages >59.000 registrations through their system. Stotinka is a total provider which, besides timing, also include a complete registration module, start-/result lists, live tracking & start bibs production. Everything can of course be customized for each race.
The system is very easy-to-use & a few example benefits are that the race organizer can use existing volunteers/staff as time keepers instead of e.g. having to pay extra staff from the timing supplier, & that the race organizer only pay a fixed fee per finishing participant. Timing is often a big part of the budget & cutting costs are essential.
Sounds interesting? Please contact us to start a discussion!
We are also a race organizer, and let you experience a unique race in spectacular environment for charity in the Krka National Park in Croatia!
