Can I utilise the Facebook donate button?
We recommend not using the Facebook donate button as it is run by a third party organisation. If you already have a post with the donate button we recommend deleting it, as this is the only way to get rid of the button reposting Then creating a new post with the URL/link to your fundraising page. This way your followers can go to your page and donate to you there.
Why aren’t the donations I am receiving from Facebook showing on my fundraising page?
Facebook donations are handled by a third party organisation and at the moment we are unable to link these with The CareFlight Challenge. We recommend rather than using Facebook donate button feature you post the URL/link to your fundraising page. This will take people directly to your page so they can support your mission.

Yes. This year the race element of The CareFlight Challenge only includes cycling.

Yes. Only times that have completed 25km will be counted, you cannot break the distance up into small sections that equal 25km.
Can I use a motorised bike?
No. Motorised bikes are not allowed to be used in the race. We will monitor this on a trust system, so if you record a time with a motorised bike the only person you are cheating is yourself.
