I've been asked on another forum to give a breakdown for our charity sportives and show how we are different from a commercial sportive.
Both The Macc Monster and PEAK 100 are both organised and run by KidsCan Children's Cancer Resarch Centre.
We organise and benefit from both. They are not commercial sportives.
We try to make them as cost effective as possible by seeking sponsorship for the energy products etc and for the feed stations.
All registration fee (aside from PayPal's deduction) come straight to the charity.
Naturally there are some costs - signage, insurance, food, energy products, travel and catering wagon - but we attempt to keep these as low as possible in order to maximise the success of the sportive.
We always offer our participants the chance to support KidsCan futher by raising sponsorship for their ride.
As we are trying to make it as accessible as possible by keeping the registration cost down, we encourage riders to raise sponsorship. As our rides are both challenging 100km cycles with a lot of classified climbs we hope people will be willing to support us in this way.
If you would like any more information on the vital research KidsCan are performing please visit our website or contact us on 0161 295 3864 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope to see you at The Macc Monster or PEAK 100!
