The Mother's Day Virtual Half Marathon, 10k, 5k & 1k
"Mothers are like buttons! They hold everything together!"
INTRODUCING... THE MOTHER'S DAY VIRTUAL RACING CHALLENGE!
The Ancients celebrated Mother Goddesses with Spring Festivals that would last for days and were marked by parades, masquerades and games... The Greeks honoured Rhea. The Romans paid homage to Cybele and The Vikings celebrated Freyja.
Throughout the ages, the celebration of Mothers has always been the centrepiece of any calendar, ritually honoured alongside the gifts of Spring, New Life and the Divine.
Since then, and across many amazing cultures, these festivals have seen a myriad of transitions and we have now been celebrating Mother's Day in its modern form for almost 120 years.
AND NOW, NICE WORK PRESENTS THE ULTIMATE HOMAGE TO MOTHERS...The Mother's Day Virtual Half Marathon,10k, 5k & 1k!
This snappy little racing number was first launched in 2021 to a splendid reception from our beloved racing community and those looking to celebrate Mothering Sunday in less traditional ways.
Chocolates and bath bombs are a thing of the past; the gift of a virtual race uplifts the experience of Mother's Day to dizzying heights!
And, with a variety of distances available (Half Marathon, 10k, 5k & 1k), everyone from the complete novice to the experienced athlete can get involved with celebrating Mum!
So, don your running shoes and hit the tarmac or the dirt...The Mother's Day Virtual Challenge has landed!
But, we haven't stopped there. Our beautiful, bespoke Mother's Day medal is awarded to anyone who completes the challenge and this year's design is a real treat that will deserve pride of place in your collection.
What is a virtual race? This is a virtual race, which means you can take part anywhere in the world, in your own time and at your own pace. This also includes treadmill runs/walks. How do I take part? It's easy to take part. Once you have booked and paid for your entry, we will send you a step-by-step guide.
