Royal British Legion - Poppy Challenge - More spaces!!!

For those of you that missed out (as it got booked up rather quickly). The RBL Poppy Challenge on Virtual Runner will release 150 more spaces next week.

Challenge details:

This challenge is different from our usual races and is live between 1st - 30th November. In the month, run, swim, walk and cycle as far as you can to add to our collective km total. Our aim is to complete 88,824.6km. 888,246 is a significant number, as represents the number of poppies displayed at the Tower of London last year to remember the fallen soldiers in WW1. You must submit a minimum of 33km to qualify for this challenge. . A 20% donation from every race fee will be donated to the British Legion.

Thanks for that release is 7pm on 25th September I had better set a reminder on my phone as bet those spaces will go fast !!


If you don't get a place try emailing to ask if you can be put on a wait list in case of cancellations. I did that with the original allocation and was given a cancelled place. The email offering me the place did say that almost never happens but may be worth a shot.


Good to know. Thanks
