Virtual Run

When: Anytime throughout 2019
Where: Anywhere
Who: Anyone

A Virtual Run means you race on a day and at a location of your choice - at your pace; walk or run! It is a great chance for you to create your own route and accomplish a distance at your own pace – while your friends and family support your fundraising! If you’d prefer not to commit to a set date, or perhaps weaving through the crowds at an organised run isn’t for you, then taking on a Virtual Run could be the answer!

How far you run is entirely up to you. You can take on one of the distances below or choose your own:   

  • 5K
  • 10K
  • Half Marathon (13.1 Miles)
  • Marathon (26.2 Miles)
  • or, set your own distance, and let us know how far you'll be running/ walking


How do I sign up?

Step 1: Choose your distance, and sign up using the form below
Step 2: Ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you
Step 3: Run at a date and time that suits you, tracking your effort
Step 4: Send us proof of your run (for example photos of your running app, Garmin, Strava, other running devices or screenshots of a running machine)
Step 5: Receive your reward!


Your Reward!

  • All runners will receive a certificate for completing their race.
  • Raise over £50 to receive an ellenor Virtual Run medal
  • Raise over £200 to receive an ellenor water bottle!


It really is that simple!
