St Helens 10K Virtual Weekend T-shirt

Virtual St Helens 10K on track to be a good weekend

Innovative app will deliver an interactive race experience

The late Captain Sir Tom Moore is a source of inspiration for the organisers of the GPW Recruitment St Helens 10K Virtual Weekend on 6 & 7 March 2021. His famous quote “Tomorrow will be a good day” as shown on the event T-shirt will hopefully motivate participants as they run 10K, possibly including the steep North Road as part of their route. 

Also included is a state of the art app from TDL Event Services with a range of interactive features that tracks the individual runner and provides them with useful information about their virtual 10K. Friends and family follow their progress using this app and compare the finish times displayed on the leaderboard. 

As a result of the ongoing situation with Covid-19 a decision was made to switch from an actual race to a virtual where participants have the choice of running on Saturday or Sunday; their own course, start time and whether to run solo or with their child or another person in their household. Government advice is to stay local and for anyone who lives near to North Road they can run this as part of their route and as a test of their lockdown training. 

This race was set up by Steve Prescott MBE to improve people’s health and wellbeing and as these have come under pressure during the pandemic, an event such as this is a stress reliever on many levels. 

Participants sign up before Monday 15 February to receive their virtual St Helens 10K T-shirt which they are encouraged to wear on the weekend 6 & 7 March.

Sign up is via the St Helens 10K website.
