Virtual Halloween Run

We’re delighted to offer our supporters the new virtual challenge, the Virtual Halloween Run!

Date: Saturday 31st October 2020

Entry fee: £25 per person, including a Halloween medal

Fundraising target: Bowel Research UK does not set a target for this challenge

Available to all abilities, this spooky virtual is a great deal of fun.

Take this 5km challenge on before or on Halloween.

Do it in your running gear or a spooky character from your favourite Halloween movie scene! Trick or treat for the kids this year might get the red flag but why not do your own healthy version with a medal and goodie bag.

Simply register to the event via RunforCharity who can then give you access to the Virtual Marathon Series runners portal where you can submit your evidence before or on the big day.

The Virtual Halloween Run has a special challenge attached and asks that you dress up in fancy dress on Halloween to complete it. Quite simply, to earn the special challenge virtual medal you will need to upload a picture of you at the end of your run in fancy dress as well as proof of your completed 5km.

The Virtual Marathon Series is offering two prizes:

1.    The first one is for the fastest time in fancy dress, become the Halloween world record holder

2.    Secondly, to the person who raises the most money for their chosen charity by Halloween.

They will donate £250 to the charities chosen by the 2 winners and they will receive a running goodies pack from their partner RunThrough in the post.

To apply for the fastest runner you will need to enter your time through the Virtual Marathon Series portal and complete the 5K in fancy dress on Halloween.

To apply for the highest fundraiser you will need to send an email to virtual@runforcharity.com with a link to your fundraising page no later than the 1st of November.
