To all the racers, a new Virtual Reality ❤️


Hi everyone!

This is partly conceived as the last post to the Spring 2020 Half Marathon Group, but is also directed to all our lovely racers ❤️

First up, I want us all to share a special belated pom pom cheer and a huge well done to Jazzyrunner for being the first recipient of one of our new Virtual Badges:

Congratulations Jazzyrunner for completing your Virtual 10K!!!!

If you would like to run a virtual race and get one of our vBadges, check out the updated Virtual Race and April Virtual Events posts:

Congratulations to all of the Spring 2020 Half Marathon Posse!!!

Whether or not you got the chance to run your race, you had the intention, you did the training, YOU ARE ALL SUPERSTARS! ❤️❤️❤️

Be safe, be well, and keep fit!

The Marathon Team xx

Thanks Decker! I’m honoured to be the first Virtual Badge holder 😁

My event on Sunday was postponed (Bedgebury Forest Spring 10k) so instead I went out and ran a 10k round the lanes where I live on Monday. Only went and got a 10k PB at 51:09 - smashed my previous best by 59 seconds! This is a feat I don't think I'll be able to repeat for a while.

Stay safe everyone and use your permiited daily exercise while we still can x

PS I'd rather stick with my half marathon badge than switch to a virtual 10k badge

Congratulations LL! Well done! 👍🏼👏👏


Well done Jazzyrunner!

Once again a big well done to everyone in the spring HM group who managed to run a real HM or have already run theirs virtually. Comiserations to the many whose races were cancelled - I feel your pain - but a huge well done for all the effort that went into training. If you're planning to run your race virtually good luck, let us know when and how it goes 😍

Thank you Roseabi! Getting the Virtual 10k Badge has made it feel more special, and now I’ve got a pom pom cheer too, I feel brilliant! 😁😁😁

sTrongFuseHalf Marathon

My 10k this coming Saturday is off, but my plan is still to go out and run 10k somewhere. The annoying thing is that the run is on the route where most of my 10k runs are done (as it's around my village) so I'm probably going to have to find a slightly different route at a different time of day to avoid the people "doing it anyway"...

Yes, there are bound to be a few out there doing that. Frustrating if you are a local. Staggered start times?!

CantstopmenowHUHM v10Mile

Hi roseabi, I ran my first 10 miles (well 17k) last Saturday, 22nd March. 😁 I posted a photo of the time, distance and VRWC confirmation on the bridge forum. Shall I copy it here? It wasn't a virtual race, but I'd love a 10 miles badge please, if I'm entitled to one. X

Well done again Jazzyrunner 🏅

And well done everyone else for getting out there and getting it done 😉

I'm getting my virtual HM done tomorrow morning! It was going to be at the weekend, so it would be on the actual day off my event, but as restrictions are getting tighter by the day I'm doing it asap!

Happy Running Everyone! X

Curlygurly2Half Marathon

I ran a virtual 5K, may I have a badge please? Or is it only for longer distances?

roseabiAdministrator in reply to Curlygurly2

Nope, we have badges for all the usual race distances! Well done xxx

Let me know when you want your half marathon badge back!

Curlygurly2Half Marathon in reply to roseabi

Ohhh!! I can't have both? Boooo!

roseabiAdministrator in reply to Curlygurly2

Which do you want then? 😊
