Organiser's Description

TURKEY-SYRIA CHARITY RUN
Date of Challenge: 4th and 5th March 2023
You will all be aware of the recent tragedy in Turkey and Syria. A catastrophic earthquake measuring 7.8 magnitude struck southern and central parts of Turkey and northern Syria. The earthquake was so powerful, it could be felt in other countries around Europe.

The earthquake, at the time of writing, has caused over 19,000 deaths, and hundreds of thousands of people left homeless. Now is the time to come together and show our support. This is why we have decided to organise a very special virtual run on the 4th and 5th of March to show our support and raise money to help people affected by this horrific natural disaster.

We will donate 100% of profits from all entry fees to the Red Cross.

WHAT’S INVOLVED?
Run, walk or jog any distance, anywhere at any pace on Saturday, 4th or Sunday, 5th March 2023.

Distances accepted: 1k, 5k, 10k, 10 miles, half marathon, full marathon, ultra.

WHAT’S INCLUDED?
Everybody who completes this challenge and submits their evidence will receive a beautiful white aluminium finishers medal with a plain coloured ribbon.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE CHALLENGE?
Once you have completed your challenge, simply go to our website and upload a screenshot of your activity on our secure submission form https://the-running-bug.com/submit-your-evidence/

Once your evidence has been sent, you should be redirected to a confirmation page. Then that's it! Your medal should arrive within 10 working days.

FAQs

  • What happens if I sign up for this challenge but then can't do it?

    No problem. We understand that sometimes life gets in the way of your plans. If you find that you have signed up for one of our races then decide not to participate, we would be happy to defer your place onto another race at the same value. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer refunds unless it is under special circumstances at the discretion of management.

  • How do I send you my evidence?

    Submitting your evidence is really easy. Simply take a screenshot of your activity from your mobile and visit our secure submission form at https://the-running-bug.com/submit-your-evidence/ where you can upload your file. This will be emailed to us. We accept evidence from all activity apps including Strava, Garmin, Fitbit, etc. Once you have sent your evidence, you should be redirected to a confirmation page.

  • How long does it take to receive my medal?

    Once your medal has been posted, you will receive another email to confirm. We aim to post your medals within 7 days of the conclusion of the event. All medals are sent second class by Royal Mail delivery. Medals sent to an address outside the UK can take longer. We do not take any responsibility for the loss or damage of medals in transit.

  • What happens if I don't receive my medal?

    Sometimes items do get damaged or lost in the postal system. Unfortunately, we don’t have any control over this. However, we appreciate this can be frustrating and disappointing not receiving your medal. If in the event that you have not received a medal within 14 days after the event, please contact us with a photo of the damaged medal if appropriate and we will send a replacement medal for free. If in the event we do not have any replacement medals, we would be happy to transfer your place onto another race at no additional charges to you.
