Virtual Hop Run

09 Nov 2020 - 25 Dec 2020

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the entry pages for Stewart Brewing and Durty Events Virtual Hop Run 10K

After a long summer of not organising events we have decided we need to do something, anything!  If like us you've had enough of sitting around twiddling your thumbs and waiting for the pandemic to be over then join us for our first ever virtual event.

We have teamed up with Stewart Brewing to bring you the Virtual Hop Run, cos what's sport without great refreshment!

The Virtual Hop Run is a 10km run which can be done anywhere, anytime bewtween now and 25th December 2020, however we'd suggest that you head off road and get as muddy as you would do on the actual route.  As extra incentive we have devised a new course which starts and finishes at the Stewart Brewing HQ.  When you enter your confirmation email will contain a GPX of this route, a downloadable map of the route and a written guide for those, who like us prefer to just head out on the trails with a vague idea of where they are going.  The added benefit of heading out on to the Stewart Brewing Course is that there is a brewery at the end with a tap room, where you can collect your Virtual Hop Run medal in person and enjoy a celebratory drink, just show your entry confirmation email (on your phone or a printed copy) along with proof of completion to the guys at the brewery, and try not to leave mud all over their floor.

If you choose to do your 10k elsewhere (and we suggest you do so according to the Covid measures in your area at the time of running) then we will post out your medal on receipt of proof of your 10k run.  So get out there on the trails, in the parks, up and down your garden or stay out of the rain and do it on the treadmill we don't mind lets all just get back to events in whatever way we can and as safely as we can.

Proof of completion:  Drop us an email with/show the guys at Stewart Brewing your tracking app data (Strava, Garmin, Nike Fitness or Tom tom etc.) or send us a photograph of you enjoying your run along with your race time.  Please ask someone else in your household to take the photo if you are on a treadmill, we don't want to be responsible for any unfortunate incidents.  Emails should be sent to hoprun@durtyevents.com

When running we ask you to please follow current Covid-19 guidance from the government for your area and apply social distancing to keep yourself and others safe.
