How to Take Part in Ride+Stride

More than ever, historic churches need your support!

You can take part as an individual or with a team travelling between churches as part of your local church or maybe with friends from your work. For this please download the Standard Sponsorship Form below.

Some churches and people hold an event rather than travel between churches. If you are doing this please download the Special Event Sponsorship Form below.

In Ride+Stride, Cyclists, Walkers and Horse Riders raise sponsorship money by visiting churches and chapels on any route of their choice – most people will be willing to sponsor you for a ‘set amount’ regardless of the number of places you visit. You can also check our list of churches that will be open on the day.  The money raised (before Gift Aid) will be shared equally between GHCT and the church of your choice.

Just Giving

We recommend that the Local Organiser sets up an on-line fundraising webpage through Just Giving. You will find instructions on the GHCT website at R+S Just Giving Set Up Guide.

Important Information

Any activity undertaken by participants in Ride and Stride is at their own risk. It is a condition of participation that, save to the extent required by law, GHCT accepts no liability in respect of death or injury sustained by any participant in the sponsored Ride and Stride.

We love photographs! If you are happy for us to use photographs in publicity, please email them to ride-and-stride@ghct.org.uk with details of who is in the photograph and where it was taken.
