We've gone virtually insane with the lockdown!
So to get some fitness mojo back we've launched a 'virtual' distance event.
We are virtually travelling the globe, visiting the 7 continents - starting with North America.
Run, walk, step, pogo stick, cycle - whatever suits.
Just cover 5 miles and you'll be the proud recipient of our gorgeous custom-made event medal.
How does this work?
You complete this event 'virtually' anywhere. Complete it in your own time & pace. This virtual event can be done running, walking, swimming, cycling, on a treadmill, around your garden etc - distance is distance. Just cover 5 miles and you're a finisher!
How much is it?
It's just £10 to enter which includes all delivery and processing fees. You will get a confirmation email receipt on sign up (this will be from Entry Central - we recommend checking your spam folder once entered just in case you have an over zealous firewall.) Then simply complete your distance, submit your evidence (see below) and we will dispatch your medal in the post! Please note: All entries are non-refundable / non-transferable to other dates / events. (UK competitors only please - medals cannot be posted overseas).
What do you mean by evidence?
On your confirmation email receipt will be a 'RETURN EVIDENCE' email address. If you use a running app, just take a screen grab and send it to that 'RETURN EVIDENCE' email address.
Or send a photo of your treadmill display, running watch, Fitbit etc. As long as it shows 5 miles, you're good. And of course, we want selfies of you completing your distances, so attach those to your evidence email too. We'll give you a shout out on our social media.
Must I complete the distance in one go?
No. We understand some you may not be up to 5 miles in one go. You can split your distance into as many smaller ones as you need. Just remember to submit all the smaller distance evidence together at the same time when complete.
Please note: When registering for this event, the entry price is for a space/entry to take part - you are not just purchasing the medal, we want you to work for it. The medal is your reward which gets sent out on submission of your distance(s) evidence.
Can I cover more than 5 miles?
Yes. If you can easily cover longer distances, simply submit evidence showing a run of 5 miles or greater and you're good.
Can anyone enter?
Yes - just please take care of any persons under 18yrs competing (parent/guardian completes sign up process for them). Just have fun and run, walk, bike, hike, whatever you want. Please note: By registering you understand that any injury or damage caused by completing your distance(s) is your own responsibility. Mash Running will not be held responsible for any injury / damage that occurs during your participation.
When will I get my medal?
We will send medals out second class once a week, so please allow approx 5 to 10 working days to receive it. Please check your details are correct on your confirmation email, this is what we use to send your medals out.
