Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. Can I enter a team?

Q. Can my company enter a team?

A. Yes, contact Amy on akenyon@soldierscharity.org or 0207 811 3960 to discuss your requirements.

Q. Who is managing the shooting/ranges?

A. The weapons and ranges are managed by British Shooting and EJ Churchill. Instruction will be on a one-on-one basis

Q. Is it safe?

A. Safety is paramount – to ensure this we have teamed up with British Shooting and EJ Churchill to ensure that the weapons are carefully controlled and managed. Each range will have qualified instructors who will work with each runner one on one.

As with all such events which require physical exertion there is a small risk, however we do everything we can to get you as prepared as possible for the run itself.

Q. What will I be shooting?

A. Two shooting challenges will be using an Air-Arms MPR and the third using a shotgun.

Q. How far is it?

A. The minimum route is 10km – if you miss all of your shots you’ll run a maximum of 15km.

Q. How do I get to the start?

A. Details will be e-mailed to you closer to April.

Q. Do I need to train?

A. You’ll need to train for the run! The better prepared you are for the run the steadier your hands will be for the shooting. We will send you a training plan to make sure you’re in tip top condition and stand more chance of hitting those targets.

Q. What should I bring?

A. A full kit list will be sent once you have registered

Q. What is the fundraising target?

A. We ask that each participant raises a minimum of £250 per person. This money goes towards helping soldiers, veterans and their families.

Q. Why do I have to raise money and where does it go?

A. Rifle Run raises money for ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, with the money raised going towards helping soldiers, veterans, and their families in times of greatest need. Find out more about who we’ve helped on our ‘stories’ section.

Q. Can I get help reaching the sponsorship target?

A. Of course, e-mail akenyon@soldierscharity.org or call us on 020 7811 3960. We can help with ideas, answer your queries, and provide you with any fundraising materials you may need – collection tins, t-shirts, wristbands etc.

Q. What happens if I do not reach the minimum sponsorship target?

A. All we can ask is that you do your absolute best to raise £250 per person. You also have up to 6 weeks after the event to hit that all-important target. We’re here to help every step of the way so don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Q. Can I fundraise online?

A. Of course! We’re big fans of online fundraising at The Soldiers’ Charity. It’s quick, easy, and secure for both you and your sponsors. We'll set you up with a personalised fundraising page for you to use which you can fill with your own photos and sponsors can leave you messages of support. All you have to do is send it out to everyone and everyone!
