Have you ever wished to run the major marathons? Have you entered your name into the ballot and received the rejection email? Well, your luck has finally changed! Run For The World have created the Virtual Major Marathons series. The first of the six major marathons is in Tokyo. Choose your distance to run in a single run/walk from the date of the Tokyo Marathon (March 1st) until the end of 2020. As soon as you submit an activity of your chosen distance, you will receive medal one of the Virtual Major Marathons series.
Note: Only one of the Virtual Marathon Series events can be completed at one time so you cannot run only once after signing up to all events to receive all medals. You must run six separate times to collect all six events.
Tokyo is an extremely picturesque city with huge modern building in the centre and beautiful landscapes beyond. We have created a medal with a 3D style city view with Mount Fuji in the background. All of the series' medals connect to each other to create a star formation. Collect all six to call yourself a (virtual) Major Marathon finisher!
We have chosen The Running Charity as our Virtual Marathon Series 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.
£2 from every entry will go to The Running Charity for the Virtual Marathon Series, however if you would like to donate more, please do so by using the 'Donate' button. All donations will be sent to the charity on the conclusion of the series.
