Getting sponsored

There’s nothing like a tough, physical challenge to rake in the sponsorship and the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Cycle is just that. As your entry fee covers the cost of the event only, it’s getting sponsored that really helps to change people’s lives, so we recommend a minimum sponsorship target of £100. Luckily, bagging those sponsors couldn’t be easier:

  • When entering, you’ll get to set up an online Giving Page which you can use to collect sponsors’ cash easily and securely.
  • Use our top sponsorship tips to maximise the amount you raise.
  • Use our handy sponsorship form to collect sponsorship in person.

About the Cycle

  • Taking place on Sunday 23rd March.
  • Choose to do either a 25 or 50-mile route (for those aged 16 or over) in London, Glasgow or Manchester.
  • Enter friends and family so you can all do it together.
  • Special 3-mile Family Cycle routes for all ages in all three locations.

The 25-mile and 50-mile Cycles will be on open roads, so you’ll need to have basic levels of bike cycling competency and be familiar with the Highway Code. For more detailed information about safe cycling, and for any other questions about the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Cycle, check out our FAQs.

Get the person you think will sponsor you the most to sponsor you first. That really sets the bar high for other sponsors.
