What happens to the money?

Adderbury Running Club ( A R C ) aims to break even at all of its events. Occasionally, we may choose to accumulate funds to support future events and activities that promote health through fitness in our village and immediate local area. We will always make a significant donation (relative to our income from entrants' fees and sponsorships) to local chairties and local projects. All entrants will also receive something (usually a goodie bag and a medal) to celebrate the event.
