Join us for the inaugural Blesma Remembrance 11k

Blesma are delighted to announce the launch our inaugural Remembrance 11K, a Blesma fundraising event which will both commemorate the significant day of Remembrance and raise vital funds for our Members.

This event will bring together the Blesma community across the Nation, creating a unique and interconnected group of participants in their own local parks and neighbourhoods across all regions, uniting everyone connected to Blesma on this very important day.

From 08.30 on Sunday 8th November 2020, you may join the Blesma team at this inaugural event which will see us all come together to complete 11K in Remembrance of the fallen, and those who came home injured. We will be streaming the live invitational event from our Chelmsford office on Sunday 8th November from 08.30 so you can join us virtually for a live warm up from a local personal trainer and experience the pre-race build up!

Post-race we will also be streaming the two minutes silence which we invite you to observe with us.

Track your 11K

Run 11K virtually, wherever you are and link your Strava account to your registration (you will have this option when you sign up). You will need to link your Strava account in order to verify your 11K and so that we can send your finisher’s pack. If you don't already have Strava, it is free to download from the Apple or Android app store.

How to take part?

Click here to sign up for this event. There is a £25 registration fee payable.

Participants will receive a special Blesma finisher’s pack which will include our Remembrance 11K medal and a Blesma buff. Please note before we send these out, we will require verification from Strava of your 11K, which should be automatically sent to us if you have linked your Strava account during your registration. We are here to assist if you have any difficulty with linking the accounts.

Timings

You can do your 11K anytime and in a way that suits you from Sunday 8th November to the 15th November

However we will be live streaming an event brief and warm up, with a few special guests, on Sunday 8th November from 08.30, for anyone who is completing their run in the morning. The live stream with the event brief and warm up will take place at our Chelmsford office and begin at 08.30 until 09.00, when we will begin the race.
