Nice Work has teamed up with Let's Do This to bring you this Midsummer Virtual Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and 1K Challenge. Taking place over the Midsummer Day Weekend, it’s a chance to get active (within appropriate social distancing) and get your hands on a special bespoke medal. There will also be prizes for leading runners and age group winners - It's a virtual race with a difference!
There is a 1k distance for younger runners and families to get involved too.
The challenge is a virtual running event, which means you can participate and complete the challenge from anywhere in the world, including treadmill runs. You can run your Half Marathon, 10k, 5k or 1k at any point over the two days, starting from 09:00am on Saturday 20th June through to midnight Sunday 21st June. All the results will be collated into a leader board and prizes awarded to overall winners and age category winners.
All you need to do is record your run with a GPS watch or activity tracking app, and snap an epic finisher's selfie to submit with your time on the Let's Do This web page. All the results will be collated into a leader board and prizes awarded to overall winners and age category winners. Plus spot prizes for creativity and best finishers' selfies!
Participants that complete the Half Marathon, 10K, 5K & 1k will get a high-quality bespoke Nice Work medal, and there will be prizes for overall and age category winners.
The event will carry a UK Athletics licence and results will be submitted shortly after the race has taken place.
