Let's Fundraise!

With over 2,000 miles of waterways to run, walk, pedal or paddle along, you’ll be spoilt for choice for beautiful places to set yourself a challenge.

Just pick a stretch of water and start raising vital funds!

By fundraising for us you are helping us to create more blue, green and better spaces by water in our cities and towns. You can help nature flourish and protect the heritage of our canals in the face of climate change.

Get inspired by our fundraisers

Jo's running challenge

This is my way of giving something back to the Canal & River Trust. To say thank you and keep up the fantastic work.

Couple running along the Towpath

When Jo’s plans to run the 2020 London Marathon had to be cancelled because of lockdown, she decided to run it virtually along her local canal.

But she didn't stop there. When the marathon was confirmed for 2021, Jo continued her fundraising efforts for us and completed another 26.2 miles along the streets of England's capital city.

Thanks to the kind support of friends and family, Jo raised over £2,000 to help us make life better by water.

The impact of your fundraising

The money you raise will do so much for our canals and rivers, for the communities who enjoy them and for the wildlife that depends on them.

Whatever event or challenge you decide to organise or take part in, we’ll support you every step of the way. Fundraising is a rewarding experience, and also a great way to meet friends and gain new skills, so let’s get started!

When planning your fundraising, please make sure you stay safe and follow the latest government guidance on coronavirus.
