With mass participation events unable to take place for the foreseeable future now is an idea time to consider ‘virtual events’ as a fun and successful way to fundraise for Thrombosis UK.

There are many events to choose from and even a series of completely free Virtual Challenges, as well as medals for all participants!

From running to walks, and don’t forget the amazing ‘once in a life-time’ challenges:

Climb Everest - A 12 week challenge perfect for isolation. Challengers will have to complete a climb equivalent to Mount Everest (8,848m) either out and about on their daily exercise, climbing the stairs indoors, or a combination of the two!

Inca Trail - A virtual challenge to tick off the bucket list. A 25 mile run, walk or jog to be completed in as many efforts as the challenger can manage.

Team Gotham - Not all Superheros wear capes....some have to fight crime in isolation too! This is a 5k challenge, so perfect for families who want to complete it together, or anyone looking to stay fit during lockdown.

The Big Charity Run - The ultimate challenge; challenges pick a 30, 60, 90 or 120 mile distance to complete over a single month. They can run, walk or cycle so perfect for setting an ambitious target and staying motivated!

Location Specific Races - Many will want to take on a challenge that is as close to a road race as physically possible, so there are a number of location specific races included so people can take part in a race on a specific date.

Organised in partnership with a top virtual events company in the UK, 'My Race', who have been producing and fulfilling Virtual Events for many years.
