May Bank Holiday Virtual Challemge Medals

Get virtually race ready for May Bank Holiday Challenge

Nice Work has launched their second May Bank Holiday Virtual Challenge with 10K, 5K and 1K distances to choose from and two bespoke medals with a sunny, seasonal theme. Fingers crossed next weekend 23 May (Saturday) to 25 May (Monday) is a fine and dry one instead of the usual British Bank Holiday weather.

Lockdown in late spring has proven to be anything but cheerful despite the good weather and for runners seeing races cancelled or postponed, it is doubly difficult. Nice Work understand the frustration and after the success of their first Virtual Spring 10K, 5K and 1K Challenge have created another for the late May Bank Holiday weekend.

This is a virtual race with a leader board and trophies for the top three male and female in the 10K and 5K and age category winners, making it a good option for the competitive runner wanting to test themselves against others albeit virtually.

It is family-friendly too with a 1K option for children and their parents to get involved in and they will receive the same medal – white – as the 5K runners. 10K finishers receive the yellow medal.

The format is as follow: the runner completes their chosen distance outside, in the garden or on a treadmill at any time over the three days. They record their run using a GPS device or fitness tracker and take a selfie which they then submit online.

The finish times are collated and prizes awarded to the leading runners and age category winners. There are spot prizes for the best selfies and creativity. Medals will be posted out to finishers.
