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.
