Get Britain Running virtual festival

Virtual Winter Running Festival 2020/21 announced

Get Britain Running partnership opens brilliant virtual series with seasonal rewards

Hard on the heels of runABC's story on a brand new partnership between five of the leading English and Welsh race promoters and mass participation and fundraising specialists, Realbuzz Group, we can reveal details of an exciting Virtual Winter Running Festival that is now taking entries.

Get Britain Running brings you a choice of five officially licensed virtual events from the organisers of Great Welsh Half Marathon, Bath Half, ABP Southampton Half Marathon, rightmove MK Half Marathon, and Richmond RUNFEST Half Marathon. If you run all five you qualify for the exclusive GBR Winter Challenger medal! Plus, entry into any of the five virtual events gets you instant access to the GBR online Winter Festival Zone, with fun for all the family, giving you that winter market experience we all miss so much.

GBR seems to have all bases covered, with an instant-access ticket to the Winter Festival Zone. Showcasing and celebrating the best of traditional British winter markets, you'll learn how to cook delicious homemade recipes, download free DIY decoration kits, kids activity packs and colouring-in sheets, and much more. 

Participants can run anywhere at a time of their choosing, including on a treadmill if the winter weather is too severe. Organisers plan to conclude events at the end of February 2021 so there is plenty of time to plan your training and virtual runs. For complete beginners, there is the GBR FREE Open Run – over any distance – rewarded with a digital medal.

With entry to any event, including the series pass or the free run, you also get access to a unique series of training and support videos from each of the race directors; personalised race bibs; downloadable finisher certificates; shareable training and finisher photo overlays and zoom downloads. 

GBR has even collated the perfect soundtrack to your running, bringing you the best of British winter tunes. The winter blues will be a thing of the past with this upbeat playlist as you pound the pavements. 

Finally, with so many charities seeing their donations dwindle this year, there will be an opportunity to raise some much-needed funds while running your virtual event/s.
