Virtual Details

THIS IS A FREE VIRTUAL event which will take place weekly. Every Monday there will be a new event to enter. We hope to motivate you to keep up your fitness, and raise money for our fantastic NHS at the same time.

How does it work?

Choose your distance - you can run 10K (6.2 miles), 5K (3.1 miles) or 1 mile (ideal distance for getting your children out and active with you too). 

Enter the event - The events are completely free, we take no money from this event and nor does our service provider Nifty. Please help the NHS by donating to one of the charities on our Just Giving page here. Even a small amount helps.

Every week one lucky runner will get a free entry to the ALDI Chester 10K 2021 AND a High5 Protect Immunity Pack - see terms & conditions here

Run your chosen distance, at a time to suit you, and enjoy running at your own pace. Only run if you feel well, make sure you follow all the government guidelines - run alone or only with members of your household and be socially distanced from other people. 

Use the link in your confirmation email to upload your time and see how you compare with other runners. You can download a certificate to show how you have done, then enter each week and watch your times improve.

England Athletics age guidelines for running are: 
- for 5k runners should be 11 years old
- for 10k runners should be 15 years old 
Children should be supervised if running on open roads.
This virtual event is not a race, and can be completed by walking, jogging or running. We have not imposed age limits, but if you're under 16 a parent or other responsible adult will need to enter for you.

Please note that as each runner covers a different route, the times can't be compared and so there will be no prizes for the virtual race.

Before proceeding please note that you are entering the VIRTUAL Keep the NHS running event.  Once you have entered you cannot transfer to another race, or another runner.
