Hi all you amazing runners!!
★ ★ ★
The HU spring 2021 event is now OPEN for entry
Choose your distance - Half Marathon or 10k
Main event Sunday 28th March, 9.30am
(or as close as suits you - but do watch out for the clock change!)
★ ★ ★
Setting off at 9.30am on Sunday 28th March we will have an added boost, knowing we are all on the virtual HU start line together - running on our own, but definitely not alone. However, we realise the date/time might not work for everyone, so in order to give greater flexibility we will accept runs at any time on Sunday March 28th or at any point during the following week of Mon 29th March - Sat 3rd April (note this is a change of date from the original announcement - well all the big events have changed their dates, why not us too?)
This event is entirely free to enter. International entries welcomed (in accordance with local COVID guidelines). There are no t-shirts, medals, socks, aid stations or toilet queues! No training plans or routes will be supplied! Instead this will be a unique HU experience, run your way 😍
★ We will compile an event playlist based on your suggestions. Look out roseabi’s poll and submit your response so we can see what apps you use to listen to music healthunlocked.com/marathon... If you haven’t submitted your suggestions for the playlist, it’s not too late! Let us know in the comments below 🎶
★ We will put together a ‘run experience’ using RunGo. Admittedly this will be somewhat quirky and you can let us know if it adds or detracts from your experience after the event (please be kind!). It’s not too late to 'feature' in this - let me have your motivational/funny message and we can include it in our audiotrack, the more the better (just send me a message via chat to keep it a surprise) 😊😊😊
★ We will produce a guide for using RunGo and the playlist in advance of the event. Hopefully there will be an opportunity to try RunGo out in advance and there will be no need to set up an account if you don’t already have one. All you will need is a phone.
★ We will put up a post for you to submit your finish times after the main event on 28th March, which will remain open until 3rd April. No proof required.
★ Race report posts will be most welcome, as always.
★ Finally, we will of course have a winner for each distance. The winner will be the person who completes their run in the time closest to our randomly generated time (after the event closes). There is absolutely no requirement to run fast to win this event! 🐌🏆
★ ★ ★ We hope you’re eager to join us ★ ★ ★
Register your entry NOW - simply comment below as to which distance you have chosen to run (transfers will be allowed right up until you start, there will be no fee to transfer - if you need to change distance between registering and the actual event just send me a message via chat or comment on your original entry reply here and we will transfer you. At present there is no option to defer) (It wouldn’t be a proper event without some T&C’s!!!)
Here's to a great week everyone, whether you're running, cross-training or resting - have fun!!!
