Virtual Doncaster 10K medal

Be a part of the movement at the Virtual Doncaster 10K

There's a limited number of places left in this celebratory event

Curly’s Athletes are inviting people to join in a running celebration of Doncaster and help three worthwhile charities as part of their goal to get everyone moving this month. Participants run, jog, walk or wheel on a favoured route and depending upon their choice of entry, receive a medal only or medal plus tech T-shirt and cake. 

This year would have been the fourth outing for the hugely popular Doncaster 10K but for Covid-19. However, a solution has been found with the creation of a virtual version and entries have been quickly snapped up. Just 200 places remain out of a capacity of 1,000.  

The Virtual Doncaster 10K will take place from this Saturday (29 November) until Monday 7 December and is one of three virtual events created by Curly’s Athletes in response to the pandemic. In keeping with their philanthropic ethos they are supporting the following charity partners: Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, Doncaster Deaf Trust and The Children’s Air Ambulance. A donation from each entry goes to these worthy causes. 

Organisers have also established a training community, leaderboard and a guide to the best running routes in Doncaster on road, grass or trail – all within the Virtual Athlete Zone where participants share training tips and offer advice. The leaderboard will go live from 29 November, streaming results as they are uploaded and enabling participants to see their position and how they compare to others. 

Every finisher will receive a bespoke medal and if they opted for an upgrade, a technical event T-shirt and cake – all by post. 

Its not too late to join in. Enter via the Curly’s Athletes website.
