Signed up for Virtual 5k Race for Run Mummy Run!

1392052_10152853536013594_8431012607657163253_nBack in October when i was visiting family in the UK i took part in my first virtual race! I really enjoyed the experience and it really made my run fun knowing i was running for myself and for charity.

The price of the race was only £6 and the money went to a charity for Hemiplegia. The race was put togeather by another runner who was raising as much money for this charity as she could.

The medal i recieved after posting the photo of my run on the race FB Group was really cute and is now in pride of place on my medal rack.

Recently i found a FB page showing all the online virtual races you can now do for charity! These races seem to be very popular now among runners and can sell out very quickly.

So as you can imagine after enjoying my first virtual race i knew i wanted to do some more!

I also like the way you get a medal for different distances so theres no pressure about how far you have to run. So i have a choice of 5km, 10km or a Half Marathon for distances and can run them anywhere i want within a certain time frame.

All the races are UK based so being an international entry i have to pay a little more than the standard £6 for UK runners. Its not very much more and i really don’t mind as the money is going to good causes.

Im also thinking about having the medals sent to my family address in the UK. That way i can pick them all up on my trip over next May!

The question now is which one or ones do i sign up for first?? There are monthly races supporting different charities so maybe one a month could be a good idea!?

I also want to do 5km and 10km distances so i push myself a little to get back into 10km running and races. So it will be good training for when i do races here in Rome or back in the UK with other people.

So for now i think i will start with the Run Mummy Run 5k virtual race as the very pretty finishers medal glows in the dark!
