#stayathomesaveliveshelpthenhsrun - to raise funds for NHS and local Essential Service Charities during Covid-19 Crisis.
A four part medal is on offer in the form of a jigsaw which will interlock (many people are doing jigsaws to keep busy).
All proceeds received will be split between local organisations (depending how much we raise)including NHS Charities Together and small community projects working directly to support NHS workers. Costs will be absolutely minimal as we are working all as volunteers and with donations for materials and skills
The aim is to run as much or as little over a time period (at your own leisure), get the kids involved and do just 1k per day, they could even form a relay team for a joint medal!
Entering one or more of the following novelly titled distances :
- 5K Lockdown Loopy
- Garden Gallop 10K
- Home Run Half Marathon
- Against All Odds Marathon (not for the faint hearted).
The idea being - you can choose to run either any single distance, or for multiples - then you run single distances consecutively. Remember mileage is cumulative so you don't have to run the target distance in one go, just do it in small "chunks" and add it all up each time you run to reach your desired distance over time. Then once you have done the 5k you only need to accumulate 5k more to reach the 10k distance, (6.24 miles), then keep topping it up until you hit a half marathon distance and so on. With each individual distance being be split down into smaller runs until you hit the target.
Miles are to be ran in your own garden/ yard and not in the streets and maybe as an addition to during daily exercise allowance as most people have families & pets to consider.
As well as raising money for fantastic causes it will give us all something to focus on, and show that we can adapt and overcome in times of adversity
