We have designed a special medal for our fantastic NHS and other emergency services key workers. So many of our NHS staff and emergency services are working way beyond anything they would expect and are putting themselves at risk too. We have seen some incredible stories already, but also some desperately sad stories during this crisis. The amounts we are donating are minimum amounts as we do not want to profit from the current crisis. Therefore the more entries we have the more we will be able to donate to charity. You are able to enter as follows:
** Enter Yourself as a single entry and we will donate £5.00 of your entry fee to the Association Of NHS Charities
** Enter A Key Worker (Single Entry - effectively you are donating your entry to a key worker) as a single entry and we will donate £5.00 of your entry fee to the Association of NHS Charities. As long as you know the name of the key worker and their email address, we can contact them, tell them you have entered them into the run and we will obtain their postal address.
** Enter Yourself & A Key Worker (Dual Entry) - as well as donating £8.00 of your entry fee to the Association Of NHS Charities, we will also put a spare medal into a Key Worker Pot. This means any Key Worker can email us and access the pot for free if they have not already been entered by a friend. As long as you know the name of the key worker and their email address, we can contact them, tell them you have entered them into the run and we will obtain their postal address.
What distance do I have to run?
We are allowing any distances from 5km upwards with no upper distance.
When do I need to complete the run by?
We are not going to have an end date for when you can complete the run as we are aware with current restrictions you may find it difficult. However all runs from 18th April 2020 will count as a qualifying run.
Where do I send confirmation of my distance?
You can email confirmation of your distance to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will then add you to our results list.
Can I run my Run For Heroes at a Saturn Event?
If you have not completed your virtual run by the time restrictions are lifted, then you can always pop along to one of our events and run your virtual run with us. You will be recorded in the virtual run results BUT we will verify the distance you have run and we will name the event you ran at. We would hope, but cannot guarantee that this would be acceptable for clubs such as 100 Marathon Club.
Will you still be holding an actual run for NHS & emergency services staff?
Separate to the virtual run, we will be holding an actual run for NHS and emergency services which will also be open to all other runners. Details of this run will be released once we know when restrictions will be lifted.
What about distance pins?
When you enter if you select any of the distances from half marathon or above, we will send you the distance pin with your medal.
When will the medal be posted to me?
The medals are in production and should arrive with us over the next 4 weeks. However, all freight is currently subject to delay, so it is difficult to provide an exact date. We will post medals and pins out as soon as the medals arrive. If you have completed your run and submitted the evidence or if you have selected a distance of half marathon or over when entering, we will send you a distance pin.
