Guide for Participants

  • You can see a list of participating churches here.
  • Gift Aid: the money raised (before GiftAid) will be shared equally between OHCT and the church of your choice. Please encourage your sponsors to GiftAid their donations if they are UK taxpayers. If you are using the sponsorship form please ensure all the following details are provided as these are needed in order to claim the GiftAid tax rebate: full name (individual only, not Smith family or R & D Smith), home address (including house name or number) and postcode. A work address is not acceptable.
  • Any tax reclaimed is paid specifically to OHCT so cannot be passed back to churches. The cost of running the St/Ride, including Virgin Money Giving charges, is covered by the tax rebate, so that all OHCT’s share of sponsor money can be used for grants.
  • Please take photographs and e-mail them to [email protected] with details of who is in the photograph and where it was taken. Please let us know if we are able to use the images for marketing purposes. Alternatively, you can upload your photos here on our website.
  • Plan your route using the list of churches participating in Ride+Strides and our route planner and ask your friends, family and other contacts to sponsor you. Some employers will ‘match fund’ your sponsorship total – we can confirm your participation as required..
  • Mobility scooters and wheelchairs are permitted throughout the event.
  • Any activity other than cycling, walking, horse riding or welcoming is undertaken by participants at their own risk. It is a condition of participation that, OHCT accepts no liability in respect of death or injury sustained by any participant in the sponsored Ride+Stride.
  • Please do all you can to ensure your own safety including high visibility clothing and a cycling helmet.
