How we'll support you

    • Every participant will receive a fundraising pack and an awesome medal
    • Walk, jog, run, cycle, swim or wheel your way, at your own pace
    • A fantastic challenge for those training for longer events

Do I have to run?

Of course. Anyone can take part in the Virtual 10K, you could even use your training to count towards your medal!

Do I have to complete the 10K in a set time?

No, though the Medal you will receive is engraved with 2019- so you may wish to complete it before 2020. It doesn’t matter whether you finish the 10K within one day or one month- you set the pace.

Do I need to raise a set amount of money?

No, there is no obligation to fundraise with this challenge. If you choose to fundraise you will receive a fundraising pack and can set your own target.
