To celebrate our first anniversary, we are releasing the Opening Series events again. This is a completely FREE event, you don't even need to pay postage! Just sign up, link your Strava account if you have one for automated syncing, and run/walk your chosen distance in a single activity between 00:00 Friday 15th May and 23:59 Sunday 17th May. If you don't use Strava, you can manually upload your activity by clicking on 'Add Run' and filling in your activity information. Please don't leave this until the last minute, though, as we will have to sync your upload to the event before the end of the event.
Our reward for the Opening Series events is a 5cm diameter embroidery patch in a colour based on the distance you choose. By completing the 3km distance, you will receive the patch with a blue border and for the 5km, 10km and 21.1km distances you will receive the patch with a bronze, silver and gold border respectively. You will have chance to earn all four colours if you wish as there will be four parts of this series spread across the year!
If you wish to donate money to this event, it will go to The Running Charity. This is a fantastic charity that helps homeless 16-25 year olds in London and Manchester get on their feet (literally). We all know that running helps with mental health so this is a great help for those less fortunate to build mental, social and other life skills to build a better future for themselves.
