During this pandemic our patients and their loved ones need you now more than ever!
Our unwanted friend Covid-19 continues to cause disruption in our everyday lives including the world of events.
We sadly inform you that we are unable to host our annual Six Mile Race and Junior One Mile Run as normal on Sunday 25th April at Bryn Bach Parc.
Instead we’re excited to go virtual and welcome runners both seniors and juniors, past supporters and new to join us and help raise vital funds for our patients and their loved ones. Let’s see how far round the world we reach!
The Hospice of the Valleys’ Virtual Six Mile Race and Junior One Mile Run is set where you want it to be. Your garden, local community, treadmill or skipping/stepping on the spot.
We encourage children to be supervised by an adult during their one-mile challenge.
Senior (age 17 plus) registration fee will be £8.00
Junior (age 4-16) registration fee will be £4.00
Senior runners – FREE Hospice Buff and certificate
Junior runners – FREE Hospice medal and certificate
Senior runners – raise over £30 and receive a limited edition Hospice Anniversary tech t-shirt.
Prize for the highest senior fundraiser – 12 months free Gold Gym Membership with Fresh Active (includes Gym membership, training and diet plan)
Junior runners – raise over £30 and receive an Easter Bunny bar and FREE entry into a prize draw for 2 admission passes into EGNI, children’s activity centre.
Prize for the highest junior fundraiser – 2 free admission passes for EGNI, children’s activity centre.
All fundraising must be received at the Hospice by Monday 3rd May 2021.
All we ask is that, once registered (which is open now), on Sunday 25th April complete your distance and take a photo of your evidence, from phone, strava, treadmill etc and send it to the Hospice.
We have set up a face book group so you could share direct into this group.
Post your start, during and finish photos on social media and tag in Hospice of the Valleys #hospicesixmilerace #hospicejunioronemilerun
Of course, we will be there to virtually cheer you on. Hope you join us!
DO TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE AND PLEASE DO NOT ACT IN A WAY THAT WOULD ADD FURTHER PRESSURE TO THE NHS.
PLEASE ENSURE YOU FOLLOW GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE – WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS.
