Virtual Event

9 races

£8.90 - £59.10

COVID-19 INFORMATION

Please note the following changes for the event and please read the codes of conduct below.

1. The first change you will notice is the start time. Rather than a single start time for all runners, we are operating a pre-booking system with start times available in 3-minute slots. People will be allocated a place on the start line according to their anticipated finish time, with the fastest runner lining up on the front of the start line.
2. Please arrive ready to run. There are no changing facilities and no facilities for left baggage – this is in line with UKA Guidelines.
3. A sterile area will be in force around the start line with strictly no access to anybody other than participants and race officials. Once you enter this area you will not be able to leave until your race begins. NO SPECTATORS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHIN THIS STERILE AREA.
4. Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, water, in sealed bottles, will be available at the finish and you will be required to collect it yourself from an unmanned water table – hand sanitiser and gloves will be available for you to use. There will not be a water station on the course. Please dispose of the bottles and other litter in the bins provided.
5. Again, in line with UKA Guidelines, no results, race prizes or awards will be available on the day. Results will be uploaded immediately to our website and emailed to participants. Race and age group winners will receive a trophy in the post after the event. Medals will be available to be collected at the event.
6. There will be toilet facilities at the start / finish area and these will be sanitised regularly. Please play your part by washing your hands thoroughly and using hand sanitiser before and after use.
7. Hand sanitiser will be available – please use it regularly.
8. You must maintain social distancing at all times – before, during and after the race. When overtaking another runner please be mindful of the space available.
9. Spectators are not encouraged to attend – but if they must do so, they should not congregate around the race start or finish areas.
10. Once you finish your race please continue to walk through the finish funnel and return direct to your vehicle – do not wait for friends or family.
11. Please read the Participants and Spectators Code of Conduct - Please observe the ‘Rule of 6’ and do not gather in large groups to discuss the race or take team photos.

Organiser's Description

If you’re looking for a way to have an action packed first bank holiday of 2021 then we have it! This race returns for a second year after its explosive first edition that saw over 800 runners!

The May Day Virtual is a great opportunity to test your Spring training as we head into the longer and warmer days. This weekend event is a family friendly race, with something for everyone - a Half Marathon, 10k, 5k and an equally competitive 1k for the younger ones too.

This is our first ever returning virtual race, which means the bar has been set! Can you beat the May Day 10k record of 37.13? It’s not just about the time posted though, we want you to have fun! The race is all about keeping fit, being active and keeping morale high!

All you need to do is record your run on an activity tracking app and submit your times. The results from the race will be collated into a leaderboard and prizes awarded to overall winners. There’s also a selfie board with prizes for the best/most creative selfies and prizes awarded too.
