Welcome to the second installment of the RFTW Opening Series. This free, practice event is to get you used to the style of virtual running. All you need to do is track your run (or walk) with your Strava app (or other app linked to Strava) and you will complete the event. Better still, you will get a prize for finishing as well as entry into the random draw for some cool running accessories!
For the opening series, we are giving away an embroidery patch of the Run For The World logo in either blue, bronze, silver or gold. Sign up for, and complete, the 5km event and you will receive the bronze patch, 10km for the silver and run a half marathon for the gold version. With three events in this series, there is a chance for you to collect all three rewards!
As this is our Opening Series, the charity for these three events will be ‘Bliss’ - a charity for all babies born premature or sick. Their vision is that every child born premature or sick in the UK has the best chance of survival and quality of life. Every day, 220 babies are admitted to neonatal care. One in four of these little ones will need life-saving intensive care. Let’s try to help these children get the start in life they deserve.
For all FREE events the top three runners who accumulate the most donations for the charity will receive a RFTW prize box. We will also be giving away 10 more in our lucky draw giveaway. Everyone who completes their chosen distance will go into the hat to win a box of great prizes, worth £25!
