Run at your pace and distance for hospice care – the new ellenor Virtual Run 2019!

We're asking people to sign up for our first ever Virtual Run to raise money for hospice care. Every penny raised will make a huge difference and help ellenor continue to provide free, vital services to patients and their families living with a life limiting or terminal illness.

Emma Bowles, ellenor Senior Events Fundraiser says: “We are really excited to launch our first ever virtual run; we haven’t done anything like this before and already the interest in the event has been staggering. There are many people who would love to participate in physical events but are unable to commit to a set day or time, so the Virtual Run will give them the opportunity to take on a run/ walk at a time and place that suits them!”

The ellenor Virtual Run will allow runners to run at their convenience and location of choice. All you need do is register online and then walk or run the race distance in your own time whether it be on a treadmill in the gym or at home, or the great outdoors! How far you run is entirely up to you. You can take on a set distance of 5k, 10k, half a marathon, and full marathon or choose your own distance – while your friends and family support your fundraising!

By registering not only are you being motivated to enjoy the great outdoors, live a healthier lifestyle, you are also raising money for hospice care. Once you have registered you will receive a fundraising pack which includes a chart to keep track of your progress and sponsor forms. Everyone who completes the Virtual Race will receive a certificate; raise over £50 and receive a bespoke medal and with over £200 of sponsorship an exclusive ellenor water bottle.
