Having collectively raised over £5000 for the Royal British Legion during our 2017 campaign, we wanted to design a virtual race and medal even more stunning and special in a bid to commemorate 100 years since armistice day, when the 'war to end all wars' was finally over.
Participants from 2017
At least £5 from every entry will be donated to the Royal British Legion and we will be adding funds to the Just Giving page we have set up. Please see the link here;
Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery on this race, as due to demand we have had to reorder more.
What is a virtual race? A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. And your medal will be shipped directly to you. Complete a virtual 5K, 10K, half marathon and more!
You will be a virtual runner, competing with virtual runners all over the World, to be the fastest in each race and try to enter our all time Hall Of Fame. Of course, you can do it just for fun too.
You can run or walk the distance (done in one go) to win your medal and certificate.
There are no deadlines on any of our races and no particular Month you have to complete them in. Once a race has sold out, the Hall of Fame 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed runners will be sent an additional special Gold (1st), Silver (2nd), Bronze (3rd) medal.
Every race has limited places, so once we sell out, the race will end. Sometimes this can be very quick, sometimes it can take several Months.
We will send out the medal and certificate once you have signed up for the race .
At least ££from every race entry will be donated to Charity. Please Click Here to see details of our current charities and there is also the opportunity to suggest a future charity by completing a short form. Race The Distance, with the help of our runners have raised over £50,000 and counting.
