The Virtual 5k Series has seen an amazing amount of running done by over 64 competitors over the last 10 weeks! Most athletes have now qualified for their medal; meaning they’ve run 5 lots of 5km, with their fastest 3 counting towards their ranking on the leaderboard. Over the last few weeks the leaderboard has certainly chopped and changed on a daily basis as runners try to find an extra second here or there to help them boost up a place or to!
As we’re coming towards the end of the series we’ve also placed an order for our hand-made wooden medals and, sticking with our theme of being a greener company, we have ordered some wooden trophies from Chipmumf – a local company who “breathes new life into old wood.”
Each week we have emailed our runners with inspiration, tips and messages from other runners such as ‘From where I run’ and ‘Meet the Runner’, we’ve copied below the latest extract into our meet the runner (Hi Susie!)
So with just 2 weeks left, it’s all still to play for! Runners, keep on running and emailing in your evidence to firstname.lastname@example.org and keep an eye on the leaderboard which you can view here.
