About the Event
We have a new virtual medal challenge, and even better this one’s not waiting for new medals or ribbons to arrive! They’re right here already! It is the 3k Your Way Challenge. Our follow on to the popular mini Roman Running Challenge! Imagine a fanfare of geese honking as I don't know what swans sound like! :)
To earn the beautiful swan medal you and anyone doing the challenge with you need to run, walk or fly (if you're capable) a minimum of 3km. But and so as no to ruffle any feathers you can do this in any number of activities within reason (please within reason, having to certify a cm at a time would be...... ). This challenge is suitable for people of all sizes including children. Sorry if you were looking for some private time. This also works for people getting into running or those who like running for shiny things but not that far or even those who need some motivation to help with walks! I know more than a few people are finding it tougher to get out the door after weeks of STAY HOME being plastered everywhere. Like the mini Roman Challenge you can enter as a team. So more little people may be available if you already own them but please don’t steal any, kidnapping is wrong even if their parents beg you to take them after months of lockdown and home schooling! We’re thinking this might be a good way to get all members of a household active maybe even adults who are somewhat run averse ... but remember to respect the social distance for all others out of your household (or bubble if that's a thing by the time you read this) while out exercising responsibly.
You, and any little person/people present, need to run at least 1km - if you need walk breaks that’s fine, but overall a responsible adult must be present to run with the child/children.
Then choose a team name, you could use your name from the last challenge though these medals obviously have swans on them and were going to be for our fun run at our Abbotsbury Eventide races. Results will show :
Team Neptune Legion Rides Again: James, Liz, Mary and Pip (you don't have to tell them they can't ride yet)
When you've completed the challenge then send the evidence to us. To make it easy that evidence can be any of the following: strava, garmin link, screenshot, photo of your watch screen at the end of the activity so we know how far you went, how long it took and when it was. You only need to support evidence for the responsible person so don’t worry about having tracking for everyone.
1 Medal = £9
2 Medals = £13.50
3 Medals = £18.00
4 Medals = £22.50
5 Medals = £27
We’ll do our best to send medals out to you as soon as we've received the evidence of your run after signing up.
This event runs now until we either sellout or the end of the event period. We did sellout last time on the mini challenge so you may not be able to swan about on this one (though we do have a second batch on order so a few places more than with mini Romans).
Activities can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org or pm us on facebook.
Please feel free to post any photos of your challenges to our facebook pages and help us to share the fun. We really appreciate you being nice to us and helping us through while we can't put our races on.
50p from each medal purchased goes to charity TBD.
Keep safe, keep healthy and enjoy.
