Why take part in this challenge?
As a small local running club, we have been left out of pocket (as many have) by the current COVID 19 pandemic. We are trying to recoup some of these costs by offering runners the chance to have a goal to work towards and gain a medal in return. We all need a focus and a reason to keep training in these difficult times and this might just be the answer!
So, how does it work?
You choose the place where you run, walk or jog (ensuring you follow current government advice with social distancing) and when you run within the given time frame of 6.30am Monday 24th August 2020 to 7pm Sunday 30th August 2020. If you are lucky enough to be from Dumfries, we would encourage you to run the Doonhamer 10K route. Details can be found here
We challenge you to take on the 10K distance and afterwards, send us your run to claim your medal. You will then be sent your medal after the race closes. Please note all evidence must be received by 12 noon Monday 31st August 202.
When it comes to your evidence, use an app such as Strava, Garmin, Apple or Fitbit to record your run. All evidence should be submitted directly to Entry Central, you should be able to upload your evidence once you have logged in. Please bear in mind that this Virtual event process is a new thing to us, and Entry Central. Medals will then be posted by Royal Mail 2nd Class.
