Apperley Quarter Marathon 20 (virtual)
13 Sep 2020
COVID 19 UPDATE - AQM VIRTUAL 2020
Sadly COVID 19 has impacted many, including some very close to the organisers, and given the fact that we have continued uncertainty from government when races will be allowed and the fact that important stakeholders are pushing for a decision we will have to call off the proposed date on Sept 13th. If, for there is always hope, and when we have more race friendly information this notice will operate now as a cancellation until next year. In place of this we are going to have a go at doing a virtual race (s) as a method of raising funds for our charity, Acorns Hospice for Children and three village community organisations as it is a tough time for them as well.
You will have the option of:
1) run a quarter marathon, distance of 6.55 miles, during the course of the week leading up to the 13th September at a place of your choosing and email the result into us.
2) run a distance of 3.27 miles, a fairly unique 1/8th marathon and a little further than a park run.
Did look into doing a fundraiser of a QM in August (an AQM challenge!) but after 3 in a week my knee decided not a good idea!!! Age catches us all up!
You will receive in the post a race number for your individual run and a medal. We are currently working on a golden ticket idea and a way of getting cakes involved!
You might want to meet up with 5 different runners to make the event more manageable in a socially distant way. We are looking at methods of incorporated more competitive elements to the race.
Have a great run and share the virtual run around please virtually on social media, zoom meetings etc!!! Thank you for support over the years, the running community really is a lovely group.
