Take part in the Lock-down Virtual Run 2

Virtual run - a family running outside

What’s the Idea?

The Lock-down Virtual Run is back for a 2nd time this Saturday 16 May

A fun way for families to keep fit while supporting the NHS

What’s the story

Muddy Productions are teaming up with Let’s Do This to bring another Little Welly Virtual Run

As the first one was such a success- they have decided to launch another one.

This is a great virtual race to do with the kids

And at the end, everyone who booked a space will receive a medal

Which is a great lockdown memory!

Unlike some other virtual runs/activities this one has to be completed on 16 May

But what’s a better way to motivate and encourage everyone out of the house!

People should do this because…?

Encourages and motivates the entire family to go out and get some exercise.

The event is helping to raise money for ‘the heroes of the NHS’

So 20% of the entry fee per person will be donated

If you entered the first run then this is your chance to beat your time or increase your distance!

You can choose from 3 distances – 2.5k, 5k, or 10k

They will keep track of all of the entry times Meaning you can track your performance against your age group

At the end you will receive a medal

As a lockdown memory and something to be proud of!
