Event description

Description

World Kidney Day is a global awareness campaign aimed at raising awareness of the importance of our kidneys. It takes places on 8th March 2018 and to commemorate this day, I am holding a virtual race.

Date: As above, the date is Thursday 8th March 2018. Anytime during this 24 hour period. I am aiming to raise awareness of World Kidney Day and so the run must take place on this day. This is the only condition to this virtual race.

Distance: There is no set distance. The reason being that everyone is at different stages of their running journeys so it would be unfair to tell you how far to run. The only thing I ask is that you push yourself a little bit further than you would usually, and think of those who aren't fortunate to be able to run or walk.

Location: The location is completely your choice. You can run or walk either outside or on a treadmill.

What do I get? A medal of course! A very special World Kidney Day 2018 medal will be sent to you once you have submitted your results. Not to mention, you'll have the sense of achievement of completing your run and knowing that your money has gone to two very worthy charities.

How do I submit my results? I am more than happy to accept submissions via social media; Facebook (there is a specific 'event' set up on Facebook), Twitter or Instagram. Send submissions to me @marathon_sam on Twitter and Instagram. Or you can let me know via the contact organiser form below. Don't forget to use the hashtag #WorldKidneyDay2018 or #WKD2018

A bit more info: To add a bit more excitement, there will be spot prizes of vouchers for a very well known online sports retailer. To be in the running for a spot prize all you have to do is the following... The charities colour scheme is purple. We all know how much I love purple, so all you have to do is take the best selfie out on your run with something of the colour purple. It can be something you're wearing, something you've come across, a landmark, anything! Submit your photos with your results to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

So where does my money go? There is no profit being made from this event. Your £7 entry fee is split into two - £3.50 covers the cost of the event; medal, postage, packaging, etc. And the other £3.50 goes directly to the charities. I'm doing this is my own time as this is something I feel passionate about so taking no money from the event.

Which charities are we supporting? The two charities benefiting from this event are Kidney Research UK and Kidney Care UK. More about these charities can be found here:

And finally: From the bottom of my heart, I thank you so much for taking part in this virtual race. My aim is to raise awareness whilst raising money for some amazing charities. I hope you enjoy the experience; whether it be a solo run or a run with friends, have fun and just enjoy it :)
